All students participate in the Work Study Program, working throughout the entire school year (September thru June)
Prior to beginning work, students receive five weeks of training in soft skills (note taking, email/phone etiquette, interpersonal communication) and technical skills (Microsoft and Google platforms, office machines). Students' professional development continues throughout their four years at Cristo Rey.
Four students share one, full-time position throughout the week
Students are transported to and from work throughout Silicon Valley
Program Coordinators provide supervisor and student support
Performance is monitored with daily time cards, site visits and bi-annual surveys
Students are not on our partners' payrolls. Partners pay a fee for service to the Work Study Program, with no additional HR, tax or insurance costs.
