FWS, CWS & Volunteer Positions
A "Community Assistantship Position" (CAP) is a Volunteer or College Work Study/Federal Work Study position that offer students opportunities to participate out of the classroom and into the community. The Community Partnerships Department builds relationships with organizations that will benefit the professional and personal development of students at TCSPP ensuring a variety of experiences working with diverse populations. Students may dedicate 2-10 hours a week at their chosen site. Community Partnerships and Career Services host a Job & Volunteer Fair on campus in the fall and spring. Available positions are also posted on Handshake.
