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 the Chicago campus in the fall and spring. Available positions are also posted on Handshake​.
