Jesuit Volunteer Program at Cristo Rey Jesuit High School

Most volunteers in the past have served the school in the classroom teaching subjects that span the entire curriculum. They have found their place on the field or on the court coaching a wide range of athletic teams. Volunteers have led retreat programs and been heavily involved with campus ministry activities. They have also worked in various offices around school, volunteered their time at fund-raising events, counseled, tutored and led many extra-curricular activities including student government, student plays, service trips, etc. Driving students to their corporate internship jobs is an essential need of the school and all volunteers are asked to drive once daily. All volunteer responsibilities are assigned or approved by the Program Coordinator who works in conjunction with members of the Leadership Team to fill the school’s needs with the volunteers best interests and gifts in mind.

The Cristo Rey Jesuit Volunteer Program connects men and women who wish to serve as educators in a low-income community with the opportunity to work in an innovative educational environment. Cristo Rey Jesuit High School was established to provide Latino families of Chicago’s Southwest Side with the opportunity to provide their children with a Jesuit, college preparatory education. The CRJV Program was founded in 1999 in response to the extensive needs and limited resources of Cristo Rey.
