Last weekend, interns working in Central Indiana came together to give back to our community by volunteering at Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana. Sponsored by ExactTarget, this event demonstrated how interns can use their “down time” to connect with their community, give back, and meet fellow interns.
It was also a challenge to ExactTarget’s Slingshot interns to implement a community-wide event. Because the event was such a success—about 50 interns attended—we’re hoping to see other Indiana companies consider sponsoring similar events. (Are you an employer interested in thinking about ways to bring interns together to give back or have fun in their community? Please leave a comment so we can contact you.)
If you’re not interning in Central Indiana, we have some great partners in the Ft. Wayne area, too. The Live, Learn & Intern series is a part of the Graduate Retention Program—an initiative designed to attract and retain college and high school graduates in Northeast Indiana. Live, Learn, & Intern was created to allow interns to connect with one another in a laid back and fun atmosphere and highlight great spaces and activities in Northeast Indiana.
If you’re interning in the Ft. Wayne area and have attended the Live, Learn, Intern series, we’d like to hear from you. (Please leave a comment and let us know your favorite event!) If you’ve not attended the series, tonight is the final event. But don’t wait—you must register to attend tonight’s Live, Learn & Intern: Sycamore Hills Golf Club.
