Cristo Rey Boston Corporate Work Study Program
Wellesley Hills, MA – Wealth Impact Partners is pleased to announce its participation in Cristo Rey Boston High School’s Corporate Work Study Program. Cristo Rey Boston is a member of the Cristo Rey Network, a thriving association of 24 high schools that utilize an innovative work-study program to provide affordable, Catholic education to more than 6,500 students nationwide. Located in Dorchester’s Savin Hill neighborhood, the school exclusively serves families with limited financial resources.
Wealth Impact Partners joins over 100 companies currently involved with Cristo Rey Boston’s Corporate Work Study Program. Beginning in September 2011, four students will work at the Wealth Impact Partners offices five days per month to help pay for their education and to gain professional experience. The money generated from their placements offsets tuition, making Cristo Rey Boston the most affordable private education in the city.
All students in the Cristo Rey Network work in similar positions nationwide, learning about the corporate world, connecting their academic coursework to the work they do at their corporate placements, and gaining valuable skills that will serve them beyond high school.
We are very excited by this opportunity to work with Christo Rey Boston students,” notes Ron Ware, president and CEO to Wealth Impact Partners. “The Corporate Work Study Program is an innovative and mutually beneficial way for us to extend our commitment to the community and make a positive difference.”
