PEOPLE Program

shutterstock_bus plannerFor the second year in a row I have the privilege of working with our PEOPLE Program Intern this summer!  For a little background, the PEOPLE program is a program out of UW-Madison and taking a summary off of their website:

“PEOPLE is a pre-college pipeline for students of color and low-income students, most of whom are the first in their families to potentially attend college. Their journey prepares them to apply, be successfully admitted and enroll at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.”

Each high school student in the program has the opportunity to go and work in a field of their choice.  This year our intern, Jordan, chose the field of business and landed a spot (and an office) at American Family.  His first day was yesterday and we are excited to have him on board!  Although Jordan will be working from HR I hope to have him connecting to other divisions and experiences as well.

Jordan will be sharing some of his experiences in future blog posts so stay tuned!
