ESD Welcomes High School Work-Study Students

A year-long work-study program is underway at ESD for a group of area high school students, demonstrating the company’s support of our community and action to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Four students from Cristo Rey Jesuit High School will be providing general office support while also learning about different business units at ESD. It is part of a Corporate Work-Study Program that supports college-bound students in their education while also providing a professional work experience.

Cristo Rey offers a Catholic, college preparatory education and professional work experience to students from Spanish-speaking families with limited financial means. Many former high school interns with ESD have continued the relationship through college with some becoming full-time employees post-graduation.

Supporting the community and providing opportunities for students through programs like this demonstrate ESD’s core values: Respect Everyone, Work Hard, and Play to Win.
