Taylor, Porter, Brooks & Phillips LLP issued the following announcement on Aug. 22.
Taylor Porter is a corporate partner of the Cristo Rey Baton Rouge Franciscan High School Corporate Work Study Program(CWSP), and our law firm is proud to welcomeTydrian Johnson, Jadarion Davis, Sandil Joseph, and TajMarqui Paul, for the 2019-2020 school year.
Under the Cristo Rey model, each student spends one full day of their week working at a local office to supplement part of their tuition and pick up some real world career training. The school trains the students on basic soft skills — how to properly dress for work, interact with co-workers, conduct business over the phone and address clients — as well as hard skills such as printing, copying and filing. Then it matches each student up with a company. Each August, the school ceremoniously introduces students to their new employers at a “Draft Day” event.
Cristo Rey Baton Rouge Franciscan High School is a private, Catholic school that opened in August 2016, and is part of a national network of 32 schools, projected to have 40 schools across the country by 2020.
Taylor Porter Partner Skip Philips serves on the Cristo Rey Board, and also chairs the Corporate Work Study Program Board.
Cristo Rey partners with more than 30 Capital Region businesses and nonprofits, all of which employ students one day per week. The school is continually looking for additional partners for its Corporate Work Study Program, and more details can be found online at www.cristoreybatonrouge.org. The sponsors of the Cristo Rey CWSP include: Albemarle, AT&T, Capital Area Finance Authority, Entergy Louisiana, Hancock Whitney Bank, and JPMorgan Chase.
