Trustwork is utilizing their leadership and talented staff to provide real-life job opportunities to inspire young minds.

Trustwork, a Seattle-based technology company founded by Peter Rex, was honored by IREM with the REME Award for Corporate and Social Responsibility, for their work in the foundation and ongoing development of Cristo Rey Tampa High School.

The REME Award specifically recognized Trustwork’s role in creating Cristo Rey Tampa High School, which serves underprivileged communities in the Tampa area, and its unique vocational programs. The Corporate Work Study Program lets students gain valuable work experience without taking away from their first-class college preparatory education. Students work five days a month with partner organizations, including corporations and non-profits, and Cristo Rey provides transportation to and from the job site.

“I’m honored to congratulate Trustwork on their Award for their initiative and leadership on such a wonderful project that does so much for the students of Cristo Rey High School,” said Donald B. Wilkerson, 2018 IREM President. “Trustwork is utilizing their leadership and talented staff to provide real-life job opportunities to inspire young minds.”

InvestRes (a Trustwork affiliated company) Recruiter Marlena Leary accepted the award at a ceremony in Hollywood, Florida on behalf of Trustwork and InvestRes.

“We’re so happy to receive the prestigious REME Award,” Leary said. “We hope that our project at Cristo Rey inspires others like it, so that great job training is extended to students of all backgrounds.”
