How It Works
THE CORPORATE WORK STUDY PROGRAM
The Corporate Work Study Program, Inc. at Cristo Rey® Boston High School seeks full-time, entry-level, clerical positions for bright, motivated students. Our young professionals will perform tasks such as filing, copying, faxing, delivering inter-office mail, assembling information packets, basic data-entry, reception, and general "go for" duties.
HOW IT WORKS
Companies contract with the Corporate Work Study Program for full-time, entry-level, clerical jobs.
- Four students share one job. The business is covered Monday through Friday.
- Students rotate their schedules, each working five full days a month. Academic schedules are structured so that students never miss a class.
- Students work standard business hours, usually 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM or 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, from September through mid-June.
- Students are employees of the Corporate Work Study Program, not the Sponsors. Companies pay a flat fee to CWSP for one full-time Corporate Work Study Team; CWSP handles all payroll, W-4, I-9, Worker's Compensation, FICA and FUTA paperwork, as well as all routine employer issues. Each student earns over 60% of their education costs.
- The Corporate Work Study Program is separately incorporated, functioning like a temporary employment agency within Cristo Rey Boston High School.
- Corporate Partners are charged a competitive fee for the services of the students. It is less expensive to hire a team of our students than it is to employ a full-time employee at your firm.

Sponsor Reference Guide
The Corporate Work Study Program runs from September through mid-June.
