High School students in Chicago succeed at work

Posted on:
Program Timing: As Soon As Possible / Location: Chicago, IL

Cristo Rey Jesuit High School is actively seeking recent college graduates to enter our Cristo Rey
Jesuit Volunteer Program in August of 2019. 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,
social justice, 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.

Volunteer benefits include room and board, health and dental insurance, a shared vehicle for
local transportation, monthly stipends for living expenses and loan repayments, and an end of
service bonus of $2,500. Feel free to call for more information about our program and the
different roles we have available within the school. Contact Jason Dillon at 773-890-6884.
Applications are currently being accepted on a rolling basis.
