Wilke Fleury is a proud Corporate Work-Study partner of Cristo Rey High School Sacramento. Four students from Cristo Rey work at the firm as a job-sharing team to cover one clerical position. The students learn valuable skills and marketable job experience, and also gain insight into various career possibilities. The firm is pleased to have the opportunity to help prepare some of our region’s students for the workplace and to participate in community outreach while doing so.
Cristo Rey High School Sacramento is part of the national Cristo Rey Network of more than 24 high schools throughout the United States. The school is dedicated to the advancement of the students both in terms of a quality college preparatory education and professional work experience. Cristo Rey Sacramento is co-sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, Auburn Regional Community, the California Province of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, and the California Province of the Society of Jesus. The school was co-founded by Bishop William K. Weigand. Quality education is provided for youth from low income families. The unique Corporate Work-Study program provides each student an unprecedented opportunity to work in corporate America in an entry–level clerical job and to participate in paying for the cost of their education.
