Community Service Work-Study

For Employers


Please read carefully the List of Employer Responsibilities and then contact the Community Employment Administrator at if you want to post a job.

Recommended posting times:

  • Academic-year-long positions: July-August
  • Fall positions: July to September
  • January break (4 weeks) positions: mid-October to November
  • Spring positions: December to February
  • Summer positions: April to June

MIT students can work up to 20 hours a week during class periods and 40 hours a week during non-class periods, including all MIT positions.

Could you use some extra help? In addition to coordinating volunteer projects, the Priscilla King Gray Public Service Center offers Community Service Work-Study opportunities to graduate and undergraduate 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.
