V&E and Cristo Rey Jesuit
The Cristo Rey Jesuit Corporate Work-Study Program
is a unique, innovative model of education that gives students a Jesuit, college-preparatory education while earning work-experience in blue-ribbon companies across the Houston area. Each student at Cristo Rey Jesuit earns the majority of his or her tuition through the work-study program. Cristo Rey Jesuit’s unique model of education is funded by their corporate partners. V&E has been a proud supporter of Cristo Rey since it opened its doors in Houston in 2009. We have worked closely with well over 25 students (we are currently hosting eight) and have watched them grow to be confident, successful young leaders. Students work on projects with real deadlines and are held accountable for their work product. They also get to experience firsthand that success in the business world is often a result of active communication and teamwork as their confidence is inspired. Vinson & Elkins strongly supports Cristo Rey’s initiatives and students.
