Taylor Porter Participates in Third Annual Draft Day for Cristo Rey Corporate Work Study Program


August 27, 2018

Taylor Porter was a proud participant in the Third Annual Draft Day for the Cristo Rey Baton Rouge Franciscan High School as students were "drafted" by roughly 40 local businesses in a ceremony held at LSU Carl Maddox Field House on Friday, Aug. 24. Cristo Rey students are linked to job opportunities with partner Capital Region companies, which provide the equivalent of a full-time entry-level position to a team of students who report to work one, eight-hour day per week while attending school the other four days.

Taylor Porter has been a corporate partner of the program since the inception, and Taylor Porter Managing Partner
Skip Philips serves on the Cristo Rey Board, and also chairs the Corporate Work Study Program Board.

Founded in 2016, the Baton Rouge campus of the high school currently serves 192 students from low-income families, offsetting the price of tuition by having students work five days per month at a local business. It’s part of a larger network of 35 Catholic work-study preparatory schools in the United States. ​The Corporate Work Study Program sponsors include Albemarle, AT&T, Baton Rouge Area Foundation, Capital Area Finance Authority, and Entergy Louisiana.
