Bryan Seck, Prosper Lincoln’s Developer for Employment Skills, presented Kidwell with the Prosper Lincoln Step Up award for their Passport internship program.  From left, Megan Johnson – HR Generalist, Jamie Mohrman – HR Manager, and Andrew Davenport - CFO of Kidwell, accepted the award.

Through the Prosper Lincoln employment skills focus area, Kidwell staff learned that many high school graduates are not thinking about STEM and construction careers, even though they are in high demand. Kidwell decided to help close this gap by expanding upon their student programs.

The Passport program is geared towards juniors/seniors in high school and freshman in college focusing on the areas of electrical contracting, low voltage installation, and IT networking careers. The goal of the program is to provide students with an opportunity to get a hands-on experience, build a professional network and see first-hand what a day in their career of interest looks like.

Students are paired with a mentor for a 4-week period and receive stamps in their passport for each activity they do. Activities include career prep opportunities such as job shadows, resume reviews and practice interviews. At the end of 4 weeks, a $500 scholarship is given away to one student to use at their school of choice.

 "Passport helps high school and college students not only learn skills but also about the many possibilities of a rewarding career in the skilled trades,” said Bryan Seck, Developer for Employment Skills Prosper Lincoln.
