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.

"Deciding to go back to school to learn English and obtain my GED has been one of the most important decisions I ever made. My credit ESL instructors guided and helped me to adjust to my new life as a student. They understood me as a student and as a person. Being a full-time worker, a full-time student, and a mother of three was not easy, but my instructors encouraged me to keep going. They spent time with me revising my writing and giving me feedback to improve my English, even after class time. They made me feel welcome and proud of being a student later in life. Now, I am a Hancock graduate with three AAs and am currently attending Cal Poly. I'm here because my instructors encouraged me to never give up. My ESL instructors believed in me even before I started believing in myself. It has been a long and not so easy road but I now know that I can reach all my goals."
