Professional Mentoring

Professional mentors are integral to Cristo Rey Jesuit’s Corporate Work Study Program. Professional mentors are a valuable resource to our students to help them fully embrace their CWSP experience. Mentors offer personalized, one-on-one weekly motivation and advice to propel students to take initiative and be more proactive at work and in school. Mentors guide students through a program modeled on Sean Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, and help students understand how to incorporate these lessons into their work ethic, as well as other areas of their lives.
