In seeing your message, I immediately thought about Cristo Rey High School, here in San Diego,CA. This high school provides an affordable, college-preparatory education to students from economically disadvantaged families and has an innovative corporate Work Study Program where their students gain transferable schools by working in some of San Diego’s top companies.
Many of the concern/needs you listed are topics that the school staff has to plan for including introducing students in high school to work expectations, figure out transportation since most of the work study positions are outside the immediate school community, etc.
Here is their website: https://cristoreysandiego.org/ As soon as I figure out the best point person, I will shoot you an email as well.
All the best,
