How it Works

The Corporate Work Study program operates like a temporary employment agency within Cristo Rey Jesuit Seattle and employs every student five full days a month in an entry-level, professional job all four years of high school.

Elements of the Program

Students earn a majority of their education cost while gaining real-world work experience that strengthens their cognitive and social capital development, catalyzes confidence and aspiration, and prepares them for success in college and careers.

Student associates receive three weeks of summer training before their first job placement, which equips them with the technical and soft skills necessary to flourish in the workforce. Additionally, they have a weekly class to hone these skills and reflect on the opportunities their placement provides them as they consider their purpose and future college and career plans.
