Off-Campus (Work-Study) Jobs: Community Service Jobs Program
The Community Service Jobs Program (CSJP) was created in 1994 in compliance with government regulations. At that time, it was required that five percent of the Federal Work Study (FWS) budget be allocated to students serving in a community service capacity. In compliance with this, work-study awarded students with the ability to travel off-campus may also consider employment off site. All participating students receive appropriate on-site supervision and are expected to attend three group reflection sessions during the academic year. Sites include:
- The Children's Home of Cincinnati
- The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County
- Families Forward
- Frederick Douglas Elementary
- Lower Price Hill Community School
- National Underground Railroad Freedom Center
- Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center
- XU Learning Assistance Center
In order to find a CSJP work-study job, students are encouraged to attend the annual Employment Fair, which is held before classes begin in August. Students must take the initiative to find a CSJP or on-campus job. Jobs are not guaranteed to all work study students.
