CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ComEd launched its annual summer internship program, providing local
teen students with opportunities to learn more about the energy industry
through hands-on job training and career experience.

This year, more than 250 Chicagoland-area college and high school

some will be trained to serve as ComEd youth ambassadors attending local
community events, teaching others about energy efficiency and how to
take advantage of smart meter technology.

“Technology continues to change our world and we need a workforce that
will help us meet the challenges of the future. Our summer internship
program is an effort to engage the young people in our communities and
expose them to career opportunities,” said Anne Pramaggiore, president

help us see improved opportunities to benefit our customers.”

stop to listen to me made me realize my voice matters.”
