Community Service Work-Study

For Employers


Community Service Work-Study job postings for spring semester are now being accepted! Click here to post a job.

If you find a student you would like to hire, he or she is encouraged to apply for Community Service Work-Study funding from the Public Service Center by the early bird deadline of Friday, February 27. Each week, qualified applicants will be approved, even after this suggested application date has passed, as funding permits.

Could you use some extra help? In addition to coordinating volunteer projects, the MIT Public Service Center manages Community Service Work-Study jobs for students who qualify for Federal work-study. Our goal is to connect student workers with non-profit, educational and governmental organizations striving to improve quality of life for community residents—particularly low-income or underserved individuals—or to solve specific problems related to their needs.

MIT students can help with your organization's immediate needs and so much more. Do you need someone to organize a fundraising event, manage volunteers, create a database or even recruit more MIT students to help out? We encourage employers to use students as problem solvers, and we have found that jobs involving creative thinking often fill the quickest. Job openings can be advertised for term time, during the winter Independent Activities Period or even the summer.
