CalWORKs/GAIN

Our Study Time Policy:

One (1) Hour of Class Time Equals One (1) Hour of Study Time.



CalWORKs/GAIN (California Work Opportunity and Responsibility to Kids/Greater Avenues to Independence) is a government (both state and federal) funded program that offers temporary financial assistance, vocational and job skills training, as well as other support services.

Our office serves as a liaison between the college and the Los Angeles Department of Public Services.  Eligible CalWORKs participants are referred to our office for the completion of referral forms, academic advisement, educational plan, training verification, progress reports, and assistance with monthly attendance reports.

Our goal is to assist program participants in transitioning from welfare to long term self-sufficiency and gainful employment through coordinated student services.

If you are attending West Los Angeles College and 18 years or older and you are currently receiving cash aid (CalWORKs/TANF), you many qualify for CalWORKS/GAIN.


Available support services include:

  • Book/Supply Vouchers
  • Academic Advisement
  • Training and Employment Verification
  • Work Study (On-campus)
  • Progress Reports
  • Monthly Attendance Reports
  • Tutoring
  • Workshops
  • Child Care
  • Coordination of services for persons with learning disabilities
