“The High School Interns from Carmen High School of Science and Technology have been a wonderful addition to Alverno College. This arrangement has proven to be mutually beneficial. We have benefitted from the additional administrative support and the students have gained valuable basic work experiences. A true win-win situation. The students have become full members of our team and we enjoy the opportunity to guide and mentor students from our community. I would highly recommend SIP to other organizations.”
--Kathy Bundalo, Director, Advising Office – Alverno College
“The lawyers and staff of Godfrey & Kahn have a strong institutional and individual commitment to community service. We view our participation in the Carmen High School Student Internship Program as a great opportunity to provide high school students with exposure to a multi-faceted, professional workplace. We work hard to expose the students to the various, non-legal aspects of our business including technology, accounting, and office support services, and to provide them with meaningful, skill-building tasks. The business, organizational and social skills the students develop during their internships with Godfrey & Kahn should serve them well as they continue their educations and enter the permanent workforce.”
--Debra Koenig, Attorney - Godfrey & Khan, S.C.
"We have had a wonderful experience with the Student Internship Program. We have five student interns and have been part of the program since it started three years ago. We like to grow our own employees and develop them from a very young age through instilling our sense of culture and what’s important to us. We want to attract and retain the most qualified health care professionals and it has been great to work with the high school interns and to be able to see them blossom and mature. It is our hope that they will work with us throughout high school and college and then become part of our permanent staff.”
--Myra McGeorge Covault, Volunteer Services Associate - Froedert Hospital
“We have a unique environment—we employ and provided services to the disabled community and as a result, we were a little unsure if a high school student intern would have the maturity and ability to be understanding and work well with everyone. We needn’t have worried. Our intern jumped right into our projects, was enthusiastic, listened and was respectful of the needs of others. He is a valued member of our staff now, an involved and committed team member. It’s hard to believe he is a high school student!”
