Clark Schaefer Hackett Helps Students Through School’s Corporate Work Study Program

CINCINNATI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the past two years, regional accounting firm Clark
Schaefer Hackett
has partnered with Cincinnati’s DePaul Cristo Rey
High School to provide a real-world work experience. The school’s
Corporate Work Study Program pairs students with local businesses for a
mutually beneficial relationship: the companies get reliable help with
administrative tasks, and the students gain experience, confidence and
connections with local professionals, as well as financial support for
college-prep education.

“We greatly value our partnership with Clark Schaefer Hackett,” said
Lisa Claytor, director of the DePaul Cristo Rey Corporate Work Study
Program. “This partnership and our program help to put Cincinnati’s
future to work by providing meaningful professional experiences to
students now, while preparing them to fill future professional roles in
our city. DPCR serves students whose families wouldn’t otherwise afford
a private education, so our partners are also key to our mission that
quality education can help lift young people out of poverty.”

The Corporate Work Study Program has had many success stories, and Clark
Schaefer Hackett
is one of the 100+ dedicated partnerships the
school has with local companies.

“This is a great program – we’re thrilled to have another group of
DePaul Cristo Rey students assisting us again this year,” said John
Moster, CPA
, who is in charge of Clark
Schaefer Hackett’s Cincinnati office
. “The students we welcome are
consistently assets to our team, and we’re honored to be able to provide
an inclusive and instructive professional experience – the first for
some of these students – in return.”

time and talents to a wide variety of schools, non-profits, and other
organizations in the region. “Our partnership with DePaul Cristo Rey is
