At GCA, you’re given the opportunity to participate in an on-campus job. We believe that learning to work, being punctual, and faithfully performing assigned duties is as much a part of preparing you for your future as is academics. Just like with a class, you receive a grade for your job, and earnings are used to offset tuition costs. The estimated earnings range between $1,600–$2,000 for the school year.
The following descriptions provide a brief glimpse into the various jobs available. If you would like more information about the student work program and/or the PFE Program, please contact K.C. Larsen, student work coordinator, at [email protected] or 706-625-7151.
Duties range from receptionists and janitorial workers to resident hall assistants.
Students work with teachers to grade, clean, and prepare for classes.
Work assignments range from bookkeeping in the Business Office, to serving as a receptionist at the front desk, to working with Enrollment Services.
Students perform various duties, including cooking and cleaning, to help provide delicious meals for the students and staff.
Grounds and Maintenance
Duties include mowing lawns, weeding flower beds, raking leaves, maintaining the facilities, fixing things that are broken in the dorms or elsewhere on campus, and working on the school's vehicles.
Computer Help Desk
Students work on a variety of computer-related and general technology issues and projects. Helping students with their laptops, printing ID cards, and assisting students with technology questions are part of the wide variety of job responsibilities.
PFE (Partnering for Eternity)
PFE is a scholarship program in which participating students pair up with older individuals in their communities, which are called “mentors,” in an effort to encourage multi-generational relationships. Because of the community aspect, this program is only available for village students. During weekly visits, students and their mentors work on a hobby together, sit and chat, do yardwork, cook, clean, or engage in other activities at the mentor's home. In return for successfully completing all of their PFE visits and requirements, each student receives $800 per semester ($1,600 per year) as a scholarship towards their tuition at GCA.
