Starting interns on the right path

Aug 17, 2012

An important part of the Amway intern experience is learning about our emphasis on volunteering.

Every year, Amway interns put on a children’s carnival in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan in conjunction with Urban Family Ministries. The goal is to give at-risk youth an opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends.

This year, not even a little rain could spoil the festive spirit, as more than 300 children came out to enjoy games, food, and arts and crafts, supported by 60 interns.

Giving kids a chance to relax and play in a safe environment is one of the important roles Urban Family Ministries plays in our local community, and Amway is proud to collaborate and create unique opportunities to enrich the lives of children.

Thanks to Kyle Van Andel for sharing this story, and thanks to all of our dedicated interns who are learning how we live out our values at Amway.
