McMinnville WORKS Adapts to a Changing WorldSubmitted by Headwater Investment Consulting on August 5th, 2020

Workforce Development has always been at the core of MEDP – McMinnville Economic Development Partnership’s mission, and is at the heart of why the McMinnville Works summer internship program was started 13 years ago. Thanks for COIVD-19, the 2020 program has looked a little different. The nine-week program is still project-based, full-time, paid positions. But this year’s weekly professional development workshops have been adapted to include more virtual meetings. In fact, Headwater’s lead adviser, Kevin Chambers, was able to provide personal financial basics via a Zoom presentation in June. He spoke to the interns about financial independence, understanding employer benefit packages beyond salary expectations, and touched on debt, expenses, credit, savings, and investments. He was impressed by the thoughtful questions posed by the young adults.
Perhaps your workplace could benefit from hiring a McMinnville WORKS intern next summer. Contact MEDP to find out more.
