Benefits to Students

Unique Work Experience

Students have the privilege to work one day per week at jobs in law, technology, healthcare, finance, insurance, consulting, and other professional industries, acquiring invaluable work experience and marketable job skills.

Affordable College Prep Education

Motivated low-income students are able to earn up to 70% of the cost of their private college preparatory education.

New Opportunities

Not only are students earning their way through high school and receiving a college preparatory education, but they are gaining real work experience and developing immeasurable networks.


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.
