College matters more than ever before for both professional development and personal growth. In fact, nearly 90% of CUNY students receiving welfare secure living wage jobs and move permanently out of poverty after earning their degrees.

Each year, we assist hundreds of low-income, undergraduate students who are working toward a better future.

Come to our FREE workshop and learn how students on public assistance can stay in school without jeopardizing their families’ essential benefits. This 90-minute session covers topics such as:

  • Provisions on the 4 Year College Rule
  • Provisions of the NYS Work Study/Internship Law
  • TAG Program
  • Update on WEP (Workfare)
  • Fair Hearing Process

Attend a WRI Know Your Rights Training workshop. WRI’s next KYR’s training will take place on September 30th, October 28th and November 18th, 2015 (from 1:30pm-3:00pm), Hunter East, 14th Floor, Room 1413.
