Consumers Energy Interns Give Back to Michigan Communities

Consumers Energy interns volunteered all over Michigan this summer! More than 130 interns volunteered statewide, part of the annual Consumers Energy Intern Challenge. This event involved splitting interns into teams to make a difference in their communities. From fixing up houses, to teaching children about electricity, to planning a party for an elderly community, interns made a positive impact this summer.

A Sea of Blue in Your Community

Consumers Energy interns spent hours doing service learning projects at 27 different charities and organizations in Michigan including:

After all community service projects were completed, the teams came together to present their volunteer efforts to a panel of judges. The team with the most creative impact in their Michigan community was named the official winner of the 2014 Intern Challenge.

Consumers Energy congratulates team Trivium for their hard work this summer. The team, consisting of Tobin Tarantowski, Caroline Major, Jazmine Gaymon, Maxwell Madden, Jai’shon Richmond, David Rodriguez II, Joseph Kotecki, Daniel Jarratt, Rebecca Gerth and Megan Grohnke, performed three different service projects for the Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center, City of Jackson Parks and Recreation Department, and the Jackson County Department on Aging.

We aim to hire interns who take pride in caring for the communities we serve.
