Strength in our future: The ivision + Cristo Rey Partnership
2014 marked a philanthropic turning point for ivision. We wanted to have an impact on the Atlanta community in a deeper and more thoughtful way, and we felt our efforts should be about more than just writing checks. In August, Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School opened its doors to 160-plus freshman high school students, and ivision became one of more than forty local corporate sponsors. The school’s mission is simple: “Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School is a Catholic learning community that educates young people of limited economic means to become men and women of faith, purpose, and service.”
Cristo Rey students Diamond Dale, Karina Hernandez, Destiny McLeod and Jada Milligan participate in the Cristo Rey work-study program at ivision. The students are learning everything from how to make a business call to what it takes to plan a major corporate event. They are even assisting in organizing an April 27, 2015, fundraising golf tournament for Cristo Rey.
