A-1 Self Storage Makes Monetary Donation to Cristo Rey Network!

A-1 Self Storage, the premier provider of self storage in California, announced today their monetary donation to the Cristo Rey Networks “Expanding the Vision” plan. Cristo Rey Network has been changing the lives of urban students for the past 10 years by providing college prep education within an educational model that includes students participating in their own tuition costs. The CRN model is unique in that students participate in a student work program, gaining invaluable professional skills and building anticipation for their college experience. Remarkably, CRN educates 7,400 students nationally, supports 25 schools, located in 24 cities all of whom have 96% minority enrollment. 100% of CRN graduates are accepted into 2 or 4 year college programs. The “Expanding the Vision” plan’s goal is to open a new school by Fall 2013 and review 25 more potential sites for CRN schools to open in the near future.

“Education makes a difference and Cristo Rey is a wonderful example of this fact.” said Brian Caster, President and CEO of A-1 Self Storage. “Students with poor school instruction would typically drop out without hope of attending college but will blossom in the CRN model. It’s their approach; they hook the students by handing them adult responsibilities and asking them to rise to the challenge. We at A-1 Self Storage are proud to support Cristo Rey Networks.”
