Todd & Weld LLP has become a corporate work study sponsor for a student from Cristo Rey Boston High School. The school is committed to providing a first-rate, values-based, college preparation education to economically disadvantaged youth. The students come from 30 communities throughout Greater Boston, represent 21 countries, and speak 18 different languages. Since 2005, 100 percent of its seniors have been accepted into college.
Through a comprehensive curriculum and the Corporate Work Study Program, Cristo Rey Boston prepares its graduates to become exceptional business leaders, dedicated community members, and persons of strong moral character. Students work one day a week with the corporate sponsor; the student's earnings are applied to his/her tuition.
