Kids from the Big Buddy program were recognized today for their achievements in an eight-week mentoring program.

The 2013 Level UP! Summer Internship helped students get involved in their future careers. Participants got hands-on experience in workplace skills.

One participant says he enjoyed every minute of his experience.

“Other than getting paid for it, I actually learned a lot being at the LA First Circuit Court of Appeals,” stated Larry Mecer-Aclise. “I would actually have to deal with being around older people, and I felt like an adult."

Nearly 100 worksites hosted the students, including the Department of Health and Hospitals, the Old State Capitol and Louisiana A+ Schools.
