Cristo Rey Jesuit High School announces the launch of a new remote work pilot to meet rapidly changing needs of today’s workplace through its Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP). Collaborating with Milwaukee employers, Cristo Rey Jesuit will implement an innovative hands-on remote workforce development training for teens this month.

According to Amy Leahy, CWSP Director, “The pandemic has caused workplaces and employees to adjust quickly to new ways of working. To address these changes and develop the skill sets local businesses need, CRJ will pilot Remote-CWSP until the end of the current school year. The goals of the Remote-CWSP pilot address the need for expanded flexibility for employers now and in the future; enhanced in-demand professional skills for teens; refine an effective and scalable remote work training program; and give teens real world remote work opportunities.”
