California Mini-Corps Program

Hartnell College is one of 23 colleges and universities which house a California Mini-Corps Program. This program provides training, experience, and support services to college students who are interested in becoming bilingual teachers. The students gain teaching experience by actually working at a school site in Monterey County. Students work under the supervision of the classroom teacher and the program coordinator. Students earn $10.00 per hour.

This is a federally funded program administered through Butte County Office of Education. The Hartnell students provide direct services to migrant students. The participants receive ongoing coaching and staff development from the college coordinator.
Students in the program must be: full time students, have a 2.0 GPA, bilingual, low-income, and come from a migrant background.

The California Mini-Corps program is located in building A #147 (The outside door to the right of the main doors of the library). Interested students may email or call the coordinator for further information:
