Each year the VHEDC raises money through our Golf Tournament and Annual Dinner to sponsor local internships. Students from both Century College and White Bear Lake High School have participated in the program. Some of the recent businesses that have hosted interns include: Structural Wood Corporation, Fresh Paint, Inc., Impact Group, Micra Manufacturing, Merrick, and IPS Worldwide.
Are you interested in a potential intern? Contact VHEDC Executive Director for more information.
VHEDC regularly assists in coordinating school groups for tours. VHEDC also provides financial assistance to make industry tours possible. Some tours we have recently supported included: Herold Precision Metals, Schwing America, MME group, Structural Wood, Innovize, and the Century College FabLab to name a few.

Thank you to Cindy O’Donovan and Julie Tschida for facilitating!
My experience at Structural Wood Corporation was unlike anything I have ever done. (In a good way) I gained real world working experience, and learned a lot about the busy production schedule at Structural Wood Corporation. The skills gained will be able to transfer to my future aspirations. I thank you for the opportunity!
