Moravian Manor Communities welcomed 10 enthusiastic interns from the IU13 Work Immersion Program on Tuesday, August 30, 2022. The interns are from Warwick, Cocalico, and Manheim Township school districts. They will be based out of a classroom on the Founder’s Campus for the 2022-2023 school year. The interns spent the first few weeks in the classroom preparing for their internships. IU13 Teacher Kate Weiler and Job Trainer Nathaniel Wright have been working with the interns on job skills and physical conditioning. Once their classroom training is complete, the interns will be spending four days per week performing their internships in various departments such as Dining Services, Housekeeping, Grounds, and Activities. The interns are thrilled to be part of Moravian Manor Communities and are very excited to have the employee experience. Please give them a warm welcome when you see them out and about on the Warwick Woodlands and Founder’s campuses.
