General Motors has announced their Student Corps summer internship program will expand to Flint this year.

Gerald Johnson, vice president of North America Manufacturing and Labor Relations, made the announcement Wednesday at the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce’s annual meeting. This year’s Student Corps program will include a group of ten students from Flint Southwestern Classical Academy high school. The intership program provides over 120 Detroit-area and and now Flint students with paid internships and the opportunity to give back to their neighborhoods. The teams tackle restoration, repair, landscaping and cleanup projects at neighborhood parks and schools that will help them develop teamwork, leadership skills and a service mindset. Students work with retiree mentors to manage all aspects of their projects from budgeting to planning. They also tour GM facilities and colleges for a variety of career and educational opportunities. The school select the students based on their leadership potential, dedication, determination and grit. Leaders from each team present their results to Mark Reuss, executive vice president of global product development for GM.

Last year’s accomplishments in Detroit show what could be done in Flint: eight parks were refurbished, 425 trees were planted, 392 yards of mulch were laid, 223 gallons of paint were applied, 205 bags and 29 dumpsters of plant overgrowth and 30,000 pounds of food were distributed via local hunger organizations.
