Internships Offer Steps to Employment
A look at how a partnership between In Her Presence (IHP), an immigrant-led nonprofit, and Allagash Beer Company resulted in an internship program at the brewery. Ken Gatore and Langaba Antonio both started as interns and now work full-time for the company. IHP hopes to find other companies willing to provide paid internships for immigrants and offers language and cultural training support to program partners. Celine Frueh, the HR director at Allagash, talks about the benefits to her staff of participating in this program.
