St. Martin de Porres High School
In 2004, the Sisters of the Holy Child, three other religious congregations, and a parish partnered to open St. Martin de Porres, a co-educational Catholic school providing college-preparatory education to students living in underserved areas of northern Illinois. In this Cristo Rey model school, students work in teams of four one day a week in local businesses, earning a significant portion of their tuition for the school year.


Volunteers Needed: St. Martin’s needs volunteers to tutor students during the school day, assist the college counseling department in guiding juniors and seniors through the college application process, perform outreach to its growing alumni community, organize fundraising events and prepare students, through ongoing training, for the work-study program.
