Off-Campus FWS

Off-Campus FWS Partner Organizations

In a program that is uniquely GW, you may work for one of many pre-approved off-campus non-profits and government organizations that have applied and been selected to participate in GW's off-campus FWS program. Students are still GW employees but have the opportunity to earn their FWS award at sites like Peace Corps, the National Air and Space Museum, RAINN, and many more.

2021-2022 Off-Campus FWS Employer List

New organizations are considered before each new semester starts. Due to the vetting and training required for each site to participate, it is not possible for organizations to be added mid-semester.

Search for FWS jobs from off-campus organizations on the Student Employment Talent Management System using the job type "Off-Campus FWS".

While we cannot guarantee the availability of any particular positions, Off-Campus FWS Partner Organizations have committed to adapting to remote work where possible and providing a safe work environment for roles that must be conducted in person. In addition, Student Employment has added a field on all job postings that make it clear whether a position can be performed remotely, so students will have full transparency throughout the job search process.

Early Childhood Tutoring

Each year several hundred GW students impact the lives of pre-K and elementary school children in the District of Columbia by improving their school readiness and literacy skills. If you are interested in using your FWS award to become a tutor, you will work with GW's Honey W. Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service to determine which tutoring program works best for you. Tutors can choose from many locations and varying work schedules. In general, a tutor will work six to eight hours per week; however, it is important that you carefully consider making a yearlong commitment to tutoring because a child will come to depend on you.

GW Jumpstart is an AmeriCorps program that works with 3–5 year olds to prepare them for kindergarten. Jumpstart requires a 300-hour commitment during a given academic year. GW SMARTDC is an initiative in which the Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service partners with seven community organizations and two individual elementary schools to provide literacy tutoring to students in grades K – 6.
