Cristo Rey Jesuit High School


What is the LAC?

Leadership Advisory Council (LAC)

The Leadership Advisory Council (LAC) is a group of dedicated young professionals and alumni looking to improve inner-city education by devoting their time, creativity, and financial support to the students of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School. The LAC are ambassadors for the Cristo Rey mission through fundraising, spreading our mission, helping with events, and mentorship opportunities. Since its inception in 2002, the LAC has helped put Cristo Rey on the map as one of the nation's most successful solutions to educational access by advocating for our students and their families throughout Chicago.
The LAC Commitment
Joining the Leadership Advisory Council is committing to the following:
  • Commit your time: attend the majority of quarterly meetings, become VIRTUS trained, and pick some volunteering opportunities that interest you.
  • Learn more: experience an onboarding lunch and tour at Cristo Rey.
  • Invest in our students: commit to a recurring monthly donation - $19.96 - the year Cristo Rey was founded. The cost of this financial contribution can be offset by event corporate sponsorships, company matching gift programs, or gift-in-kind donations for events.
  • Be an advocate: attend at least one Cristo Rey fundraising event each year. Be an ambassador by introducing people to Cristo Rey and the work-study program each year.
LAC Members receive formal recognition in Cristo Rey publications, access to unique networking opportunities, and discounted upgrades to or access at major school fundraising events.
