  1. 1. The Detroit Regional Chamber’s Leadership Detroit and Intern in Michigan initiatives have joined forces to create a new program that will educate interns on how and why Michigan, particularly the Metro Detroit region is the ideal place to stay. It will give the interns a better understanding and knowledge of the region, allow them to network with more professionals outside of their workplace and make contacts in other fields. Each session will give perspective into the social, economic and service aspects of the region. The timeline covers a course of roughly three months, and during this time the program will pique each intern’s interest in staying in the region upon completion of their education or internship. There is no fee to the employer for the intern’s participation. Session Overviews: • June 10, 2010 o Detroit Renaissance Club, Renaissance Center o The kick off session will introduce content on a variety of topics; including a contemporary history of the city with a focus on understanding the back story of Detroit and the region. Interns will also have the opportunity to do a self assessment including, their priorities, goals and how to recognize the impact he/she can have had on a workplace even as an intern. • July 15, 2010 o Bus tour of Detroit o This session will focus on exploring the city. The interns will be exposed to different areas and landmarks of the city via bus tour. • August 5, 2010 o Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan o This session will focus on service learning, reflection and involvement within the region. Interns will work alongside the volunteers/employees of the organization, interact with community members and gain perspective on the real needs of the community. Interns will end their final session with information on ways they can continue to be involved with in the community.
