Corporate Work Study Program

 

The Corporate Work Study team is working hard to make sure that all students can have a safe and productive CWSP experience when we return to school. CWSP is an integral part of Cristo Rey Brooklyn and all students are required to participate in some way. Outlined below are methods for student participation. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to us via email at cwsp@cristoreybrooklyn.org or phone (516) 341-1642

Pre-Placement Training (incoming students)  

  • All incoming freshmen will participate in Pre-Placement Training on his/her assigned work day (either Tuesday or Friday) for the length of a school day.  

  • All students must complete Pre-Placement Training before they are eligible to be matched with a work placement. 

  • Pre-Placement Training will hopefully take place on site, but could also be made fully virtual (which would consist of a combination of synchronous and asynchronous lessons). Pre-Placement Training will follow all guidelines of the academic schedule.  

    • If the academic schedule is fully virtual, then Pre-Placement Training will also be virtual. 

    • If the academic schedule is hybrid, then Pre-Placement Training will take place in person at school, following all social distancing and health guidelines. 

  • Pre-Placement Training will cover the skills students need to be successful at work, including computers, professional communication, phone skills, and more!

On-Site Work (sophomores, juniors, and seniors)  

  • Students will be matched with a work placement and will report directly from home to work (instead of reporting to school first and then traveling to work).  

  • Prior to beginning onsite, a member of the CWSP Team will review the safety policies set forth by the company with the student and the family. 

  • Students will follow all safety procedures outlined by the company and agreed upon by the company, CWSP, and the family. 

Remote Work (sophomores, juniors, and seniors)  

  • Students will be matched with a work placement and will report to school on their work day. 

  • Students will communicate with their supervisor(s) through email, chat, phone call, and / or zoom call. Students will complete projects for their supervisor while in the school building. 

  • A member of the CWSP team will be present to assist students and answer questions throughout the day. 

Ongoing Training / Professional Development (sophomores, juniors, and seniors)  

  • Students will not be matched with a work placement and will instead participate in ongoing training / professional development. 

  • Ongoing training / professional development will be fully virtual, with a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning.

 

Social and Emotional Support

  • Individual and group counseling is available to all students in person or via Zoom. 

  • Weekly advisory program for Freshmen, Sophomore, and Juniors to build community and strengthen relationships. 

  • Individualized, targeted support for the college process for all Seniors via weekly one-on-one meetings. 

  • Peer Leadership: Seniors mentor Freshmen, meeting every other week on Mondays. 

  • Mid-week Mindfulness Meditations. 

  • Virtual Community Building events to come!
