Students will work in teams of 10 to develop, implement service projects
General Motors has hired 110 Detroit-area high school students for paid summer internships.
They’re members of the GM Student Corps, a program being introduced Monday by GM North America President Mark Reuss that combines service, education and mentoring.
The students will work in teams of 10 to develop and implement service projects in Detroit-area neighborhoods.Helping to train and mentor them will be 60 GM retirees and 12 GM student interns from the University of Detroit Mercy.
GM will pay for the student projects and provide Chevrolet Express vans and Chevrolet Silverado full-size pickups so adult mentors can transport materials and students to project sites and life skills classes.
The teams are currently planning their projects. Work is scheduled to begin in mid-June and conclude in August.

Everybody, remember this face.
Remember this name.

No no no
Remember this brown girl.
