How it Works

The Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) underwrites the cost of education and exposes the student to a corporate work environment and positive influences of the supervising professionals. In exchange, employers that participate in CWSP receive high quality cost-effective workers and get to play an active role in students' future success.

Four students share one full-time job, with each student working five full days per month. They are transported to and from work each day, and work standard daily business hours.

Each student is pre-trained in effective communication and professional business skills by Dale Carnegie© trainers. The training prepares students to perform such tasks as filing, copying, faxing, delivering interoffice mail, assembling information packets, very basic data entry, reception, and general "go-for" duties.

Since students are employees of CWSP, Cristo Rey Jesuit High School provides each corporate participant with continuous support of our committed staff supervisors.

The program follows the school year, running annually from the week before Labor Day through the third week of June, and corporate sponsors often choose to continue students' employment through the summer months. 

Thank you to the local corporate clients, big and small, that open their companies to our students and make a difference in the community!
