At this wintery time of year
We festoon with lights and act in cheer
Here at ICA, we are celebrating YOU:
Our teammates, our partners,
Who make our dreams come true...
In the midst of this holiday season, we want to send you a message to let you know how much you mean to our community. ICA celebrates its 132nd birthday this year as well as the 7th year of our Corporate Work Study Program. These are special milestones, and they are made possible through a commited team effort. Each year, more students want to come to ICA for the promise we provide. And we are so grateful for the increasing number of companies who now understand our promise and want to be a member of our community of partners, who help make that promise a reality.
You are part of a unique community. As the ICA Cristo Rey team, we are more than 150 companies, over 256 supervisors, many volunteers, and 60 faculty and staff. Our team makes it possible for 323 young women to grow into women of faith, learning, community, leadership, and vision. 100% of these young women will go on to college and into the world, and they will lead us in the future. If you take a moment to consider who we are and what we do, I hope you realize that we are doing something truly special. We are a diverse group that comes together and gets the job done. Though we are all different, we are each committed to a very important shared mission, and through this we work together to accomplish great things.
Thank you for all you do as part of this team. In this season of giving, you and your work are the gifts we are the most grateful for. Have a very happy holiday, and may all your hopes and dreams come true in 2016!
