For the past year, the Human Resources Department has participated in the Cristo Rey Jesuit High School’s Corporate Work Study Program by employing students to work in the office one day per week from September to June. Departments now also can benefit from having a hard-working Cristo Rey student perform entry-level duties as part of the CWSP.

The CWSP provides students with real-world work experience and contributes to the cost of their education while developing the student’s marketable job skills and exposing them to engaging work environments and career development opportunities. The students come prepared with training and support from Cristo Rey’s CWSP coordinators and can perform tasks such as filing, copying, faxing and assembling information packets or mailings. Their funding for the CWSP already has been provided by the Human Resources Department.

If interested, contact Michelle Thom or Holly Gainer in Human Resources at (651) 962-6510 or humanresources@stthomas.edu.

Cristo Rey, located in Minneapolis, is part of the nationwide Cristo Rey Network of 28 high schools that provide a quality, Catholic, college preparatory education to young people who live in urban communities with limited educational options.
