Cristo Rey Jesuit High School is seeking recent college graduates to enter our Cristo Rey Jesuit Volunteer Program in August of 2020. Located in Chicago, our school serves Hispanic youth in a college prep atmosphere. Though we operate in a dual language community, Spanish language skills are not required to apply. Ours is a two year program, allowing volunteers to fully blossom within their roles. Coming from all corners of the country, recent volunteers hail from New York, California and Florida, complementing our home grown volunteers from Chicago.
We are not a part of the Jesuit Volunteer Corps, ours is a stand-alone volunteer community of 4-6 members dedicated to serving Cristo Rey Jesuit High School. Our program pillars are community, service, spirituality and simplicity. Since the program started in 1999, we have seen our volunteers go on to graduate school and careers in teaching, social work, public health, law and foreign diplomacy. Not all of our volunteers are aspiring teachers. In addition to classroom teaching, we have opportunities in departments such as our corporate work study office, campus ministry, athletics, college counseling, technology and advancement.

Feel free to call for more information about our program and the different roles we have available within the school. Contact Rocio Juarez [email protected] 773-890-6857.
