How many internships are you providing to the program?: 5
Placements require a financial obligation of $1,600 for each youth under 18 years old, and $2,000 for each intern 18 or older. Please indicate if you are a nonprofit organization and need wage assistance.: No
What transportation options for getting to and from work are available to you?: Unsure
Public Transportation Supports: Proximity to bus line and details of which line/stop. Wheels to Work program participation and cost.: This is likely the biggest challenge. We may be able to place 1 student at our small downtown location on Ottawa near Michigan Ave, but the other 4 roles (potentially all 5 roles) will be on our campus, so we will need the participants to have transportation.
Is your organization a Minority Business Enterprise?: No
Diversity Equity, & Inclusion Commitment: Share your organizations commitment to DEI, including local or national diversity commitments/pledges, links to public content outlining your strategy, and current representation in leadership and the general workforce.: https://www.davenport.edu/about/dei Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is one of 12 key focus areas for the University (Key Performance Indicator) and is one of our 5 values (Quality, Trustworthiness, Accountability, Innovation and Respect and Inclusion). Our student population is more than 28% of color and our faculty/staff are more than 17% of color. We are very pleased to have selected for a HEED award most of the last 5 years.
