  • Job references and referrals
  • Job readiness, life skills, and academic success seminars


What is "Work and Learn?"

Ready to Work Program services have expanded to include adult basic education students who are working toward their GEDs and high school graduates who are brushing up on some basic skills before entering college.  RTW services are now available to adult basic education students to help make their transition to college a smooth and successful one in all of the surrounding 16 counties.

Ready to Work/Work and Learn work-study

RTW and W&L offer work opportunities both on and off campus through a work-study program.  Participants gain work experience while earning extra income that will not reduce their K-TAP checks.  The placement of work-study students in their fields of study with both private and non-profit employers helps prepare them for the workplace and often leads to full-time employment.

•Participants gain work experience and job retention skills.
•Participants earn extra income that will not reduce their K-TAP checks.
•Employers have an opportunity to recruit SCC students and graduates.

How can the Ready to Work program help you?

In addition to work-study, RTW and W&L staff can work with your K-TAP case manager to help you access resources for transportation and car repairs, child care, uniforms and work clothing, school supplies, license fees, criminal background checks and drug tests, driver’s education and a onetime $250 graduation bonus for high school, GED, or college.
