Earlier this month, Lucerne International welcomed four Cristo Rey High School students in grades 9 through 12 as part of the school’s Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP). This program provides students with real world job experience, which allows them to supplement their tuition expenses. The program runs through the duration of the school year, giving the students a chance to build their professional portfolios.
The selected students participating in the program are Sierra (12th grade), Crystal (11th grade), Jennyfer (10th grade) and Deniqua (9th grade). Each student dedicates one day (a total of 8 hours) each week, rotating every Friday, to perform a variety of duties and learn new skills to be successful in the workplace.
Jennifer Nitz, VP of Strategic Development at Lucerne, works closely with the students and provides an environment for mentorship and exploration. Jennifer says, “We are thrilled to be part of a program where we can help create excitement and awareness in this present day of manufacturing. To be able to cultivate and train the next generation of our skilled workforce is a priority for Lucerne.”
The Lucerne family is thrilled to be a part of the students’ journey and look forward to equipping the students for personal and professional success.
