Message from the Vice President, Corporate Work Study

Dear Corporate Partners,

 

Education at Cristo Rey Atlanta occurs both in the classroom and in corporate offices throughout the city. Through the Corporate Work Study Program, every student works 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. This unique experience touches the lives of our students, their families, and the corporate partners who provide the job opportunities.

 

With your support of the Corporate Work Study Program, students are able to provide you with a job well done, while gaining valuable work experience and cultivating a strong network of professional relationships that will benefit them for a lifetime. These benefits are mutual. Our corporate partners report having students in their offices improves internal morale too. Most job partners deepen their relationship with Cristo Rey Atlanta by visiting the school, attending and sponsoring our special events, volunteering, and mentoring our students both inside and outside of the office. We welcome your involvement and interest in Cristo Rey Atlanta. Quite simply, the school would not exist without the corporate support that we enjoy.

 

We are incredibly grateful for the support the Atlanta community has already shown to the Corporate Work Study Program since Cristo Rey Atlanta opened its doors in 2014. By matching business interests with the educational and economic needs of lower-income students, we give “at-risk” young people their best chance of overcoming the financial barriers that limit their educational and professional opportunities. We are the school that works in the heart of Atlanta.

 

To begin a conversation about how your company can work with Cristo Rey Atlanta and our Corporate Work Study Program, please reach out to me.

 

Sincerely,

 

Camille Naughton

VP of Advancement & Corporate Partnerships
