The Mechanics (how it all happens):

  • Four students cover a full FTE, five days per week: 

Your student team has a member from each class. Each class has a regular working day each week. Fridays are covered on a rotational basis, with each class taking one Friday every four weeks.

  • Students never miss class

Academic schedules are built around the students’ work schedules.

  • Students are employees of the Corporate Work Study Program, not of the business partners.

The CWSP handles all payroll, W-4, I-9, Worker’s Compensation, FICA and FUTA paperwork, as well as all routine employer issues. The student earnings go towards the cost of their education.

  • The Corporate Work Study Program is separately incorporated as a 501(c)(3) corporation

The CWSP functions like a temporary employment agency within Cristo Rey St. Martin College Prep. The fee charged to business can be deducted as a business expense, not as a charitable donation.

  • Corporate Work Study Partners are charged a competitive fee.

It is less expensive to hire a team of our students than it is to employ a full-time entry-level employee.
