Saint Martin de Porres High School is an urban Catholic college-preparatory high school dedicated to working exclusively with students of modest means. Our program includes an innovative Work-Study component: we partner with local corporations who recognize the importance of investing in young people to develop habits of mind and spirit that will lead them to college and career success. Eighty percent of our students will be the first in their extended families to attend college. Saint Martin was founded in 2004 and is chartered by the state of Ohio and accredited through the Ohio Catholic Schools Accrediting Association. Our mission is to transform urban Cleveland one student at a time; we are committed to the values of work, study, service, leadership and prayer. We are a member of the Cristo Rey Network of schools founded in 2001.
The Saint Martin Volunteer Corps provides college graduates the opportunity to serve urban youth through an innovative, Catholic educational model. The program seeks to match the needs of the school with the interests, gifts, and talents of each volunteer.
Saint Martin de Porres High School is seeking energetic and responsible college graduates committed to serving urban youth and motivated by faith to serve the Saint Martin de Porres community. Saint Martin volunteers have served our community in many different areas including, but not limited to apprentice teachers, college counseling assistants, after school extra-curricular supervisors, school technology liaisons, peer mediators, tutors, campus ministers, and team coaches.
The Saint Martin Volunteer Corps is ideally a two-year program working with urban youth. The program is designed to provide each member with a rich sense of service, community, faith, and professional growth.
All members will work and live in a community of young and energetic professionals receiving a shared food stipend and all living expenses being paid by the schools. Community housing is on the school’s campus and the volunteer community ranges in size of 3-5 volunteers each year.
Individually, each Saint Martin Volunteer Corp member will receive a $500 monthly stipend and have access to an AmeriCorps Segal Education Awards (if funding is available).
Members are welcomed into the caring community of Saint Martin de Porres High School as fully engaged employees attending meetings, training programs, faculty/staff retreats, and more!
