OUR PROGRAM

All DePaul Cristo Rey students, in grades 9-12, work five days a month. Our 100+ Corporate Partners range from Fortune 500 to medium-sized to family-owned businesses. This short video offers an overview of the program. 

Here’s how this works:

Students are employees of the Corporate Work Study Program – they are not on the Corporate Partner’s payroll.

  • DPCR handles all payroll, legal and tax paperwork.
  • Corporate Partners sign a fee-for-service contract paying annually, tri-annually or monthly. 
  • These CWSP contract fees go directly toward the cost of education at DPCR.
  • DPCR provides summer and ongoing training for students.
  • DPCR relationship managers support the students’ supervisors at every employer.

A team of four students fill a full-time position. This graphic shows how they job share on a weekly basis:
