In a special ceremony, the teenagers signed their paperwork, tried on their new We Energies gear and committed to the program in front of their biggest fans — family, friends and teachers.
As part of the program, the students will spend two years getting hands-on experience working with the tools and equipment that our line mechanics and gas distribution workers use on a daily basis. In addition to earning a paycheck, the students are paired with a We Energies employee who serves as a life mentor. Students who successfully finish the program may have the opportunity to join We Energies full time.
Both internships are offered through a unique partnership between We Energies and MPS. Each is designed to help students explore careers in energy, and help We Energies attract and retain skilled and diverse employees.
