Launched by California Gov. Gavin Newsom, the #CaliforniansforAll College Corps will award some 6,500 low-income college students – including undocumented AB 540 students — $10,000 towards college costs in return for completing community service work. At a time when financial pressures force students to take jobs rather than engaging in community service, this groundbreaking program allows them to work on programs dedicated to climate action, k-12 education and COVID-19 recovery and offset college costs while earning academic credit at the same time. Learn who’s eligible, how students can apply, and why community service can be a transformative experience for students and college campuses alike.
