Arrupe Corporate Work Study Program and we have 4 students working with us for the 2011/2012 academic year. From all of us at Pinnacol, welcome Jessica, Dianna, Miriam and Juanita!
For those of you unfamiliar with the Arrupe program, it is a unique opportunity for companies to financially support education at a time when funding is critical while exposing students to what it is like to work in the real world. Arrupe students are placed at partner companies where they work one day a week during the school year. In speaking with our new students this morning they impressed me with their eagerness to learn and to avail themselves of new opportunities.
While at Pinnacol Jessica, Dianna, Miriam and Juanita will be assigned to specific teams and will each have assigned mentors to help them on their journey of exploring corporate life. Many companies in the Denver area participate, but I'm sure Arrupe would welcome additional organizations who, like Pinnacol, understand how critical a well-educated and well-prepared workforce will be to a successful future.
