More than 200 businesses throughout the Chicagoland area hire our talented students. Not only do our corporate partners understand the importance of investing in our young people because of the multitude of benefits created for our students, but also because of the benefits related to workforce development.
Our firm supports the Corporate Work Study Program for many reasons. There is the obvious benefit of supporting inner city minority students to attain a high quality, college prep high school education, but beyond that, our employees benefit enormously from establishing relationships with the students and watching them grow and succeed. We have found the relationship to be much more two-way than we anticipated.
