Community Service Work-Study positions can be found in the Cambridge/Boston area, and, during IAP and summer, you may be able to work in another part of the country, in your hometown, or elsewhere. The wages for these positions are comparable to wages for on-campus jobs, and they have the added benefit of allowing you to work for the community, often in areas relevant to your course of study. These positions are also very attractive to employers because they only have to pay a portion of your wages.
Through a Community Service Work-Study position you could, for example:
- Design a new website for a community organization
- Mentor a child in math and science
- Do environmental research
- Help a small agency with fundraising events
