Campus Life

Employment & Volunteering

Getting connected with your community will help you find balance and will contributed to your overall success as a student.

Looking for a way to get involved with others? Want to make a difference locally or globally? Volunteer for a cause you believe in and give back to your MTSC and California community at the same time.

Just need to earn some money to support your time at school? Working part-time is an excellent opportunity to contribute to your financial plan.

Through employment or volunteering (or both!), you can gain valuable work experience, learn to manage your time, and expand your business and social network.
