Help shape the future workforce of Boston
This month, we are thrilled to introduce Cristo Rey Boston High School, (CRB) a Catholic high school located in Dorchester exclusively serving families of limited economic resources. The signature component of Cristo Rey Boston is the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP), which leverages the resources of the local business communities to make private, college-preparatory education affordable and to give students an extraordinary experience that will shape the rest of their lives. This unique program helps students gain the knowledge, experience, mentorship, and connections to make their career ambitions possible. Many of Cristo Rey Boston’s corporate partners are in the real estate sector, and students can learn about an industry that is removed from their personal experiences. Moving past a limited view of business sectors and understanding there are myriad roles within each sector is a valuable component of the CWSP program.
