Job Skills

RUSD Substitute Employment Program

Are you looking for a job?

Have you always wanted to work at a school?

Riverside Adult School's Job Skills course can help you!

Students who are successful in this course will be eligible for placement as a Riverside Unified substitute employee as a Custodian or Food Service Worker! All fees for the pre employment screenings are grant funded and of no charge to the student. Food handlers certification, physical, drug/background screening - all paid for! If the cost associated with becoming a substitute employee has held you back from applying then this is a great way to overcome that!

Potential students must be over the age of 18 and no longer enrolled in high school. You do NOT need to have graduated from high school (but if you want to, we can help you with that too!).

Government issued identification and authorization to work in the U.S. is required to register. Click below to view the different ways you can prove identity and authorization to work.

There are physical ability requirements for the RUSD employment testing process. Please read about them below.

Registration for the next session will be April 2nd and 3rd at 8am and April 4th at 4pm at Riverside Adult School (6735 Magnolia Avenue in Riverside)

Students who have previously been removed from this program for lack of attendance or other reasons may not be eligible to re-enroll.

Classes will be held according to the following schedule:

April 8 - April 25

Monday through Friday

10:00am to 12:30pm OR

Monday through Thursday

5:00pm - 8:00pm

*students must pass the RUSD screening process for employment. Students who are not successful in the screening process will not be hired by RUSD but can take their certifications and skills learned in the class to obtain employment elsewhere.
