Off Campus Work Study Program
The Federal Work Study program encourages positions in community service and work related to each student's course of study. As a result, Work Study positions are also available off campus at specific non-profit or public agencies. The work performed must be in the public interest to be considered a part of the Federal Work Study program.
Community Service Positions
As a requirement of the Federal Work Study program, UW-Green Bay must make students aware of community service opportunities and employ students in community service jobs. The majority of these positions are held off campus through various local community organizations.
Some examples of Off Campus Community Service Employers are:
- NEW Curative Rehabilitation Center
- Boys and Girls Club
- Marion House
- NEW Community Shelter
- Salvation Army KROC Center
- Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary

In order to use a Work Study award at an off campus agency, that agency must hold an active Federal Work Study contract with UW-Green Bay. These agencies must be community service based, located within a reasonable distance to campus and provide positions that are beneficial to UW-Green Bay students. To discuss current contracted agencies or the possibility of contracting with UW-Green Bay, please contact the Student Employment Office at 920-465-2556.
America Reads/America Counts Positions
The Federal Government created the America Reads/America Counts program during the 1990's. This was an initiative to increase the reading level of all students, with a goal of having students reading independently by the end of third grade. UW-Green Bay partners with over 10 of the local elementary schools to provide reading and math tutors for grades K through 5. UW-Green Bay tutors work in groups or one-on-one to enhance student's reading or math skills in a classroom setting.
