Student Employment

Community Action Program (CAP)

The Community Action Program (CAP) is an opportunity for work-study eligible students to do community service for up to 20 hours a week and get paid for it through Federal and Babson work-study funding. Under the Reauthorization of the Higher Education Amendments, Congress mandated that 7% of college’s work-study allocation must be utilized in community service. This is a great opportunity to promote community service work while not sacrificing time that could be spent at a paying job. If you want to get a different type of experience, then this is a terrific way to do so. You are able to make a difference in the community or just try something different while still getting paid. You will gain real life experience at an agency, while at the same time gaining a greater sense of some of society’s problems and what can be done to help.

You can become part of the CAP program by contacting Josh Stevenson for an informational interview at or 781-239-5565.
