Work-Study

Sometimes you have available time and the drive to learn, but don’t have access to abundance in the form of cash!

Depending on enrollment, we will have either one or two work-study positions available for each PDC.

Note: As of September 20th, 2017, work-study positions are full for both the Maine Winter 2017-18 PDC and the 2018 Boston PDC, with people on the waiting list in case we need backup work-study assistance.  If work-study is your only option for affording this course, please consider fund-raising in your community/network or trying again for a future course.  

Work-study positions are available to people who would normally qualify for TIER #1 Sliding Scale Pricing based on their income bracket AND are able to commit to the following:

  • You can pay a total course tuition of $395.
  • You can help with setup and breakdown of class each day.
  • You can help organize the setup and breakdown of meal times (with help from other class volunteers) and keep the coffee/tea station up and running during class times.
  • You have independent transportation and the ability to arrive reliably to class about 1 hour early each day and stay about 1h extra at the end of the weekend for cleanup.

If you can commit to all of this and you would normally qualify for TIER #1 pricing based on income, then please contact the course administrator as the Work-Study position(s) are filled on a first come, first-served basis.
