Developing Cristo Rey Dallas Students into Leaders of Tomorrow
RealPage believes education is foundational to achieving success in the 21st century.
RealPage has teamed up with Cristo Rey Dallas, a college prep high school serving students with limited financial resources, through their corporate work-study program, which is designed to build skills and behaviors focusing on productivity, collaboration, and self-direction.
In partnership, Cristo Rey Dallas and RealPage give students opportunities to gain hands-on work experience in a corporate setting and develop life skills positioning them for success for years to come.
“Through partnership with great businesses like RealPage, Cristo Rey Dallas students are excelling in professional settings across North Texas and gaining valuable work experience while pursuing a college prep education,” said Kelby Woodard, President of Cristo Rey Dallas, “CRD students have demonstrated that they are willing to work hard to earn this extraordinary opportunity, and we are deeply grateful to RealPage for employing our students and modeling professionalism in the workplace.”
Since 2016, RealPage has welcomed eight Cristo Rey Dallas students to Richardson headquarters, who have worked to earn approximately 65% of their school tuition. Each semester, RealPage's Talent and Marketing teams recruit bright young students to support various projects, such as auditing, data entry, Excel, and social media. RealPage provides these students with unique opportunities to contribute in a meaningful way while building self-confidence and a resume.
“Working at RealPage has helped me become more prepared for my future and given me great opportunities,” said Alondra Patino Perez, senior and third year intern from Cristo Rey Dallas.
