QMI has recently partnered with our neighbors, DePaul Cristo Rey High School, in support of their Corporate Work Study Program. Sponsored by the Sisters of Charity, DePaul Cristo Rey is part of a 35-school network across the U.S. committed to serving urban students who need affordable education.
By partnering with over 100 local businesses both large and small in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, each student in grades 9-12 adheres to a five-day-a-month work schedule. At QMI we couldn't agree more that the combination of work experience, good education and an environment that provides a little more than the average, will provide a powerful path for low-income students.
DPCR anticipates the need for more corporate partners as its student enrollment expands. Many companies like ourselves find themselves wanting to participate in the program but cannot accommodate a student team in their work environment. In this case, by making a donation, we are able to help sponsor students working in a nonprofit organization. Not only does this benefit the nonprofit organization by having the student worker, it also helps the student to learn about career opportunities that are available in the nonprofit sector.
