Part-Time Work Options
We understand that college students are often in need of a career that offers them part-time work options. When pursuing higher education, students need a lot of time to study, attend classes, and keep up with social life on campus. Westside Community Focus has careers that offer this part-time flexibility, making us a great place to work for college students who aren't looking for a full-time career just yet.
Westside Community Focus not only knows that college students need jobs that offer flexibility, we prioritize it! We'll work with you to make sure your work schedule works for you. Finding the right college job requires you to find a place that values your work-life balance, respecting that you have many other obligations on your schedule. This is why we offer so much flexibility with our scheduling. The traditional 40-hour work week won't work for most students who have classes, clubs, and study groups to attend each day, and our staff believes that you shouldn't have to choose between these important experiences and your career. We are always happy to work with the ideal schedule for you when you work with Westside Community Focus!
Entry Level Positions Available
If you don't have experience assisting adults with developmental disabilities, don't worry! At Westside Community Focus we are happy to teach you how to work in any of our open roles and how to advocate for adults with disabilities. We value teachability in people seeking a college job in our community. This environment makes our workplace engaging and supportive, because not only are we invested in helping young professionals get their start, but we also value personal development in every role.

In our available roles, you will learn skills such as maintaining accurate documentation, assisting clients with identified needs and goals, monitoring and documenting medication administration, and supervising clients regarding their health and safety.
