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. Students 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.
