Full-Time Volunteer Program

Cristo Rey New York High School


The Cristo Rey New York Volunteer Program seeks dynamic, thoughtful young people of promise who are committed to sharing their many gifts and talents with our students.


This full-time, residential volunteer program requires a two-year commitment and volunteers serve the community in various ways such as teaching, assistant teaching, fundraising, moderating extra-curricular activities, coaching, and training and chaperoning students in support of our Corporate Work Study Program.


The alumni/ae of our program have gone on to meaningful careers in law, social work, business, nursing, education, public policy, and more. Many of our alums have remained at Cristo Rey New York and have held the positions of Director of College Guidance, Director of Development, Director of Graduate Support, Assistant Director of Corporate Work Study, Operations and Curriculum Manager of Corporate Work Study, History Department Chair, Religion Teacher/Campus Minister, and English Teacher.


The program runs for just over 22 months, from mid-August through late June.  Volunteers will also attend a week-long training and orientation in July of year one.
