Message from CWSP Director

Dear Current and Future Corporate Partners,

Cristo Rey Miami opens its doors making a difference in the lives of our local urban youth and their families through our innovative Corporate Work Study Program. At Cristo Rey Miami, education occurs both in the classroom and in corporate offices throughout the city. Our program provides students with valuable work experience and marketable skills while earning income towards the cost of their education. Through the program, motivated and talented students gain exposure to a wide range of career opportunities, build their business knowledge skills, and grow in self-confidence while cultivating a strong network of professional relationships. By working to learn and learning to work, students achieve success in the professional workplace, college, and beyond.

We are incredibly grateful for the support the Miami community has extended to the Corporate Work Study Program and thank our founding group of Work-Study Partners for their commitment. Quite simply, the school would not exist without the support of our Job Partners. These benefits are mutual. Job partners report having students in their offices improves internal morale and company culture. Most job partners deepen their relationship with Cristo Rey Miami by visiting the school, attending and sponsoring our special events, volunteering, and mentoring our students both inside and outside of the office. By matching business interests with the educational and economic needs of our students, we overcome the financial barriers that limit their educational and professional opportunities. We are “The School that Works” in the heart of Miami.

I invite you to learn more about Cristo Rey Miami’s Corporate Work-Study Program.  Join us as we prepare students to become “College-Ready and Career- Prepared”. Please contact me for more information or to join our group of Corporate Work-Study Partners.

Sincerely,

Amelie Ferro

Director Corporate Work-Study Program
