The Intake Process:
Once we have received your CAL Registration Request, we will follow up with an email to schedule an over the phone interview.
This begins the Intake Process, which will be followed with an in-person interview, to further discuss your educational background as well as career goals.
Please note: during COVID-19, the intake interview will be held virtually using the Zoom meeting platform.
The Career Access Lab is a 15-Week Program, that follows a Winter and Spring academic calendar. Career Groups begin in January and March of each year.
Please note: Due to a shortage of AmeriCorps Members, the next cohort of CAL will not enroll until the fall of 2023.
Important information to note:
- After you have completed the CAL interest form, you will be contacted in the fall of 2023 to begin the intake process for the next cohort.
