Become a College Corps Fellow
Join thousands of students across the state in making a difference in your community while earning money to help pay for college.
Why Should I Join College Corps?
We are excited to invite students across the state to consider making community service a core part of their college experience and preparation for future careers.
College Corps Fellows will be placed in community-based organizations working in K-12 Education, Climate Action, and Food Insecurity. As part of the service experience, Fellows will earn $10,000, receive ongoing training, and become part of a statewide cohort of young leaders across California. Undergraduate students at any partner campus of the #CaliforniansForAll College Corps are invited to apply via the links below.
Students who complete 450 hours of service with College Corps will receive the following benefits:
- $7,000 stipend (living allowance), plus a $3,000 Education Award;
- Academic credit (amount and type to be determined by each partner campus);
- A real-world job experience and skills to add to their resume;
- Access to training, networking, and professional development opportunities;
- A sense of pride and accomplishment in working toward a common purpose alongside young leaders from across the state.
