Description: Why did Lorraine, a 19-year old college student, change her career aspirations towards water utilities right before she left for college? Because of her “life changing” work during her water internship. Lorraine says “I never would have found water if it were not for this opportunity. It was everything I loved in life wrapped up into one.”
Introducing young people to water careers isn’t rocket science, but it does take a little time and effort. Find out how to tap into easy-to-use resources that help you make connections with local schools to set up education and internship programs that will inspire students in your community to want to work at your water utility.
Hear from the intern herself. Lorraine will talk about what inspires her generation, how to make meaningful connections to the public, and why young people are probably more interested in what you do, than you think.
