Taylor Porter Welcomes Back Cristo Rey Students for Corporate Work Study

August 22, 2019

Taylor Porter is a corporate partner of the Cristo Rey Baton Rouge Franciscan High School Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP), and our law firm is proud to welcome (pictured from left): Tydrian Johnson, Jadarion Davis, Sandil Joseph, and TajMarqui Paul, for the 2019-2020 school year. 

Under the Cristo Rey model, each student spends one full day of their week working at a local office to supplement part of their tuition and pick up some real world career training. ​The school trains the students on basic soft skills — how to properly dress for work, interact with co-workers, conduct business over the phone and address clients — as well as hard skills such as printing, copying and filing. Then it matches each student up with a company. Each August, the school ceremoniously introduces students to their new employers at a “Draft Day” event.

Cristo Rey Baton Rouge Franciscan High School is a private, Catholic school that opened in August 2016, and is part of a national network of 32 schools, projected to have 40 schools across the country by 2020.
