#CaliforniansForAll College Corps

The #CaliforniansForAll College Corps will help create debt-free pathways to college while engaging students across the state in solving problems in their communities.

This first of its kind initiative is being launched in partnership with California colleges and universities. College of the Siskiyous is one of 22 community colleges in the state to be selected to offer this program. Over the next two years, College of the Siskiyous will deploy fellows across the county to work with K-12 schools and after school programs to build healthier and more equitable communities across California. For the first time, we are proud to include AB 540 eligible Dreamers in a state service program.

What We're Looking For

  • Passion for working in partnership with communities to make positive change;
  • Flexibility to work in different areas and adapt to changing circumstances;
  • Growth mindset and eagerness to try new things;
  • Interest in connecting with and learning from other students and partners across the state;
  • Willingness to be an ambassador for the Fellowship on campus and beyond.

What You'll Do

Beginning August 2022, Fellows will work with K-12 schools, food banks/pantries, or climate action organizations to build healthier and more equitable communities across California. Fellows at College of the Siskiyous will be placed in K-12 schools or after school programs within Siskiyou County to serve and carry out essential duties and services, such as tutoring, mentoring, sports coaching, and/or assisting in the classroom or with food security.

What You'll Gain: Benefits

Fellows who complete 450 hours of service with College Corps will receive the following benefits:

  • Up to $7,000 living stipend (throughout service term) + $3,000 Education Award upon completion of 450 service hours;
