What is CalWORKs?
The CalWORKs Program is a partnership between Allan Hancock College and the Department
of Social Services to serve Welfare to Work recipients who are currently receiving
CalWORKs cash aid assistance. The college’s CalWORKs program offers an array of supportive
services designed to assist students in obtaining the educational level they require
to transition off of cash assistance and ultimately achieve long-term self-sufficiency.

Fire Academy Student
"I chose the fire technology program at Allan Hancock because of what it can provide for me. It's giving me a step above the other academies and throughout the state. Graduates of this academy have gone on to be the chiefs and the captains that are going to be hiring us, so when we go in for interviews by being able to say that we graduated at this academy they know what we've experienced. Allan Hancock College has provided me with the physical and mental capabilities through the classroom training we do each day and the physical training we do each morning. This academy pushes you to your boundaries and then you begin to work on those weaknesses; your weaknesses then become your strengths so you're actually growing as a person. Allan Hancock has made a difference in my life it's really taught me who I am and where I want to be."
