Men of CalWORKs

Men of CalWORKs Barbershop Edition


This program is designed to help men develop scholastic skills, self-discipline, accountability, self-sufficiency, and the ability to be fully engaged in their personal growth to facilitate success at the highest academic levels.


Each male participant will earn an Associate’s degree or certificate, and/or transfer to a four-year institution in a timely manner.


The Barbershop will provide a team-driven learning platform that enables male participants to learn, think, and express themselves freely in order to improve their life skills and navigate important life decisions.

Please note: To learn more on how to participate in the program, please visit the CalWORKs office or email Jesús Gómez at
