Brian Heese

Brian Heese is the Director of Corporate Work Study Program at a unique high school in Harlem called Cristo Rey. Cristo Rey’s mission is to provide a college-preparatory, high school education to students who for academic or financial reasons cannot attend another quality high school. Since the students’ families can’t afford to pay private school tuition, the students work at premier companies and assign their earnings to the school. The jobs pay about 45% of the cost of their education; the remainder is funded by donations and a small amount from the students’ families. Brian leads the job program by establishing relationships with companies, training the students for their positions and servicing the 100+ clients that hire the school’s students.
