CalWORKS

CalWORKs recipients are required to participate in employment and training services as part of their WtW program.  Contract staff works with referred participants to assist them in obtaining and retaining employment.  Services include facilitation of employment workshops, whose curriculum includes resume writing, interviewing, money management and career advancement; developing job placement opportunities for participants who require additional work experience. The contractor also monitors each participant as they progress through employment training services, staying in close contact with LCDSS staff to ensure participants are receiving appropriate and effective services in order to become self-sufficient.
