This summer we welcome two Step-Up Achieve interns from AchieveMpls to the iDream.tv team: Phillip and Deshawn. Throughout the summer, they’ll be sharing updates on our blog, and photos on the iDreamTV Facebook page. Deshawn is a returning intern and a graduate of Edison High School. Phillip, a junior at Southwest High School, is joining us for the first time this year.
For Breanna Parslow, an AchieveMpls Career and College Center coordinator at South and Southwest high schools, the task of preparing students for post-graduation education and employment offers no greater reward than hearing these words: “You gave me hope.”
This is the fourth year UCare has hired STEP-UP interns. We join a long list of employers supporting this program. “Our participation in the STEP-UP program is consistent with UCare's mission and values,” said Lisa Habisch, Human Resources. “We are excited to introduce these young people to the health care profession and its many career opportunities and responsibilities.”
