FUTURE CORPORATE WORK STUDY PARTNERS

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?

The Corporate Work Study Program, or CWSP, operates as 5013-C temporary employment agency within Providence Cristo Rey High School. The students are employees of the CWSP, not the Corporate Partner. The CWSP takes care of the I-9 compliance, W-4, Workers' Compensation, and other employee concerns for the students.

WHAT KINDS OF JOBS DO STUDENTS PERFORM?

Specific job descriptions differ depending on the Corporate Partner, but all students start with similar entry-level clerical duties. These duties may include data entry, answering phones, Spanish-English translation services, document management, internet research, IT support, event support, working in mail rooms, customer service, or running office errands. Many student workers, depending on their experience and skills, and the needs of the company, will progress to more challenging and complicated assignments. Students work in Accounting, Communications, Customer Service, Human Resources, Legal, Logistics, and Tax Departments. The wide range of CWSP partners allows students to be exposed to a diverse range of corporate work.

WHEN DO STUDENTS WORK?

Workdays are Monday through Thursday. Seniors work on Monday, Juniors on Tuesday, Sophomores on Wednesday, and Freshmen on Thursday. The program runs during the school year, from September to June. The program observes Christmas break, Spring break, and certain other holidays.

WHAT DOES HIRING A STUDENT COST MY BUSINESS?

Yes, there is a fee for hiring students. It costs $7,000 for each student worker from August to June. The fee covers a portion of the student's tuition, helping make Providence Cristo Rey an affordable school for those who otherwise would not be able to attend.

HOW ARE STUDENTS PREPARED FOR THEIR WORK STUDY JOB?

All incoming freshmen and transfer students attend a rigorous summer training camp before beginning their first day on the job.
