MPS students announce they are ‘taking their talents’ to We Energies

We Energies is proud to announce the recruiting class of 2021. This year, 21 Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) students committed to our innovative line mechanic and gas distribution internship programs.

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.
