Detroit Cristo Rey Students
The goal of our program is to provide opportunity for talented and creative College graduates to teach or tutor in under-served areas of the inner city of Detroit
“We must restore hope to young people, help the old, be open to the future, spread love. Be poor among the poor. We need to include the excluded and preach peace.”

The Basilian Volunteer Teaching Corps is committed to providing opportunity for talented and creative college graduates to teach or tutor while living simply in community. Identified sites are located in under-served areas of inner city Detroit and on the partially devastated Caribbean island of Montserrat.
