West Community Student Engagement Program
The West Community Student Engagement Program (WCSE) encourages students who have been awarded Federal Work-Study to find on-campus and off-campus employment opportunities. WCSE - FWS jobs are designed to engage students in improving quality of life for community residents, particularly low-income individuals, or to address issues such as: literacy training, social services, housing, neighborhood improvement, public safety, recreation, at-risk youth and community improvement. You need to maintain a minimum of a 2.5 GPA to participate in the WCSE program.
Students are encouraged to find positions in the “West Community” (Carroll County,
Haralson County, Douglas County, and Cowetta County) and become “engaged students”
while learning and earning money.
Student Opportunities include:
- Student Assistants (On Campus)
- Reading Tutors (Off Campus through America Reads)
- Math Tutors (Off Campus through America Counts)
- Community Outreach Assistants (Off Campus through Community Outreach)
Through the WCSE Program, not only are students able to find Federal Work-Study positions, but they get gainful experience and networking opportunities while becoming “engaged” with the community.
