While earning your Federal Work-study dollars, you have the opportunity to do work that will help the community, develop job skills, gain insights into your career preferences, feel good about making a difference into the lives of others, and have fun!
Southern New Hampshire University students have worked in a variety of organizations having many different responsibilities, including the following:
“I’ve always done community service. I’m glad that I can continue in college and not have to worry about getting a job.”
“I’ve enjoyed helping the kids with their homework and really feel like I am making a difference”
“I decided to do community service work-study because I wanted a job that was fun and interesting. I’m so glad I decided to do it”
“My community service work-study experience has a huge help in getting my internship. I was able to transfer the skill I developed to my new position”
"Service is the rent we pay to be living. It is the very purpose of life and not something you do in your spare time.” -- Marian Wright Edelman
