The Addlestone Library is a proud participant in career development through the REACH program. The REACH Program at College of Charleston provides an opportunity to those individuals with intellectual disabilities who are looking to engage in a typical college experience. All students in the REACH Program engage in career exploration and development through course work and internship opportunities that are available both on and off campus. REACH students have access to every aspect of college life: classes with typical students, on-campus living, ability to join clubs, take part in social events and complete internships while attending. College IS possible with the REACH Program. The library typically employs 4 or more students from the REACH program.
The Circulation Department is part of the Student Employment Program at the College of Charleston, which provides students with the opportunity to explore career choices as well as gain critical skills to improve marketability for professional employment.
Students who qualify for the Federal College Work-Study Program as established by guidelines of the U.S. Department of Education are paid from funds derived from the federal government and the university at the ratio of 75%-25%.
