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:
