California Volunteers College Corps for College Students

California Volunteers College Corps

2022-2023 College Corps Fellows

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:

  • $10,000 – which includes a living allowance throughout the service term and an Education Award upon completion;
  • 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.
