College students are earning money for public service as part of the College Corps, a new state program, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.  With $73.1 million from California’s general fund, College Corps pays thousands of college students throughout the state to help tutor, run after-school programs, participate in climate work and help curb hunger, among other acts of public service.  “College Corps is a great way to earn a living,” Josh Fryday, the state’s chief service officer who oversees California Volunteers, told the San Francisco Chronicle.  So far, students have logged more than a million hours of service – and those who complete 450 hours at one of the participating non-profits are paid $10,000.
