The Cristo Rey Network is a nationwide network of 37 college-prep, work-study high schools located in some of the poorest neighborhoods across our largest cities. Founded in 1995, students attend school four days per week and work one day a week at leading companies, institutions, and organizations in their local areas.
Through this unique work-study program, students gain firsthand knowledge of what success looks like in the business world and develop the necessary skills to compete. Additionally, they are exposed to unfamiliar people and communities that give them a broader picture of their future and provide motivation as they progress through high school, college, and eventually into their professional careers. Academic rigor combined with a caring and supportive environment best prepares students for college and beyond.
Our Future Leaders Program is a partnership with the national network of 37 Cristo Rey high schools, a unique education model that combines a rigorous curriculum with a Work-Study program. With each janitorial contract, TEC Services funds four scholarships at a Cristo Rey high school local to the customer.
The students work at the client’s ofﬁce or store, one student per day, and TEC pays for the Work-Study Program which funds the majority of the student’s education. Our customer gets an energetic, motivated intern while the student receives a top-quality college prep high school education and professional work experience.
TEC Services invests $34,000 to provide work-study opportunities for four Cristo Rey students, paying their tuition at the school.
Customers benefit from having bright, hardworking young people around the workplace, inspiring other employees.
As part of this program, each student spends one day per week onsite with the customer, gaining valuable experience and performing essential tasks such as spreadsheet analysis, filing, lab work, and customer service.
This program also creates a pool of qualified minority college graduates for customer businesses to draw from in the future.
All students are employed by Cristo Rey, not the customer, meaning you won’t have to worry about paying benefits or healthcare contributions. The work-study program is compliant with U.S. labor codes and transportation is provided by Cristo Rey.
Most importantly, customers can experience the rewarding feeling of making a positive difference in the lives of these students and their families.
Our passion for providing the highest quality janitorial and sanitation services is only matched by our commitment to creating a successful partnership with our clients.
