Welcome to the administrative offices homepage of the Labor Program at Berea College. We invite you to browse through our pages to discover information about the program as well as resources that will assist you in your important work. Student job descriptions, payroll forms, training aides, evaluation materials and general information about the program are among the many items that can be found here!
Berea College requires all students to work 10-15 hours per week in approved jobs on campus or in the community while carrying a full academic course load. These work experiences provide tremendous opportunities for students to work in major related areas and to develop soft skills that future employers are looking for. Students and alumni share an overwhelming positive view of the Labor Program. The work experience, they note, “teaches you how to work”, “provides practical experience” and “genuine job perspective.”
