How it Works for Job Partners

Cristo Rey Philadelphia High School is excited to forge new partnerships with corporations throughout the Greater Philadelphia area. Our school is based on a model of proven success that is in place at 32 other schools in cities around the country.

The cornerstone of a Cristo Rey education is the Work-Study Program. The Work-Study Program allows motivated and talented students from limited-income backgrounds the ability to gain a quality education and invaluable work experience in preparation for college.

Hard-working and well-prepared students work five days per month - in teams of four students for each job - at Job Partner companies. On the job, students gain invaluable work experience and subsidize approximately 60% of the cost of their education.

Becoming a Job Partner has many benefits for a company and its employees:

  • Job Partners accomplish work with eager and reliable students at a reasonable cost
  • Job Partners build a sense of constructive civic engagement and camaraderie among employees
  • Job Partner employees grow, becoming supportive co-workers and role models
  • The program contributes skilled, committed future workers to the Greater Philadelphia region
