Corporate Work Study Purpose

The purpose of the Corporate Work Study Program at Don Bosco Cristo Rey is to provide students with real-world job experience while allowing them to earn a portion of the cost of their high school education. This experience empowers and enables college-bound under-resourced students to succeed in the professional workplace. It is an integral part of their educational experience at Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School.

Why Partner? Diversity & Inclusion

Without intentional investments in people and communities of color, and the organizations that work to address the removal of systemic barriers, real change will remain out of reach. Business leaders nationwide recognize and are responding to the imperative to have an actionable purpose for their organizations. Cristo Rey Network’s Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) offers complementary efforts towards our mutually desired outcomes.
