Work Study

Help out at North House and earn course credit!

The Work Study Program at North House Folk School is an incentivized program through which folks can earn credit towards taking classes by helping out with less-glamorous but highly valued functions of the school. Work Study is part of the North House Accessibility Program.

North House offers two varieties of work study: weekly drop-in and extended sessions. Participants in both types earn an hour of course credit for each hour worked. Read on to learn more!

 

Weekly Drop-in Work Study

Wednesday Work Study program 

Each Wednesday at 1pm, a dedicated crew gathers to keep campus moving forward – everything from classroom set-up to deep cleaning; landscaping to recycling. Everyone is welcome — no application or pre-registration required! Just come down to the Blue Building on the North House campus and we will put you to work for one to three hours.  Each hour of work on campus earns one hour of class tuition.

Please contact Alex at ablust@northhouse.org if there are any questions.

Extended Session Work Study

North House offers extended, two week work study sessions for those that seek a deeper engagement with campus life. Two week work study volunteers can choose to take a class during their work study session or they can work for the two weeks to save up credit for a future class or classes. Some work study sessions overlap with special events and thematic weeks.  If you're looking for a social, busy experiece, sign up for a session that coincides with an event.  Expect to earn 24 to 32 hours of work study credit per week; there will time to also explore the surrounding area and plug into local events. 

Anyone may sign up for Work Study. That said, Work Study is a key strategy for ensuring programs are financially accessible to everyone. Lodging will be provided during your stay.  Extended session participants should come prepared to work outside and in, also willing and physically capable of completing a wide range of projects. Setting up classrooms, sweeping floors, washing windows, moving tables, cleaning bathrooms, mowing lawns, watering gardens, digging holes, folding letters and more!

Please contact Alex at ablust@northhouse.org if there are any questions.
