We’re very proud to be hosting two Cristo Rey Dallas College Prepatory School students in our office this school season. Throughout the school year, junior Lisandro and freshman Desiree will spend one to two days per week working with our Catholic Foundation staff on a variety of projects. The school’s Corporate Work Study Program, a key component of the fiscal sustainability of the Cristo Rey model, matches students with more than 150 job partners from corporations and non-profits. Read about the program here. The program helps students learn critical skills that will help them in life and allows them to work to earn part of their tuition. During their orientation and Back to School Week visits, Lisandro and Desiree have demonstrated they are rock stars (and as their mascot name suggests, on FIRE) and will do great things!
