IWP is joining more than 300 area companies and organizations participating in the Don Bosco High School Work Study Program. Don Bosco Cristo Rey is a co-educational high school (grades 9-12) located in Takoma Park, Maryland educating students exclusively from families of limited economic means. As part of the Work Study program, students work one day a week, earning nearly 60 percent of the cost of their education, and in turn gain valuable on-the-job experience in a diverse array of fields including IT, accounting, consulting, construction, media, education, real estate, hospitality, healthcare, financial services, and non-profits.
Don Bosco’s college preparatory curriculum, paired with its Corporate Work Study Program, equips students to thrive during and beyond high school.
IWP recently welcomed our first work study student from Don Bosco. She will work at IWP one day per week until mid-June. Walter Brown, Director of Finance, is the work study supervisor for IWP.
