CRISTO REY HIGH SCHOOL SEEKS CPA FIRMS
Corporate Work Study Program
Albuquerque’s future Cristo Rey High School is seeking corporate partners to provide entry-level jobs for high school students.
Each full-time job, which is typically white collar and in professional settings, will be shared by four students who will rotate work days. Because Cristo Rey students cannot afford to pay full tuition, the school uses an innovative Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) that requires each student to work five full days a month to fund the majority of their education, gain job experience, grow in self-confidence and realize the relevance of their education.
