Eight students have been working at Gannon University through the Summer JAM (Jobs and More) program for up to 180 hours this summer. The program started at the end of June, with students completing their summer employment on Friday, August 10. Erie-GAINS (Erie-Gannon Alliances to Improve Neighborhood Sustainability) coordinates this community connection, while six Gannon faculty and staff members have been supervising the eight students.
This is the fifth year that Gannon has partnered with the Summer JAM program, with 61 students completing their summer job at Gannon since the program's inception. "We are committed to providing real-world career opportunities for students through collaborative community partnerships," said Erika Ramalho, Director of Community and Government Relations at Gannon.
Gannon is hosting a Summer JAM Celebration for the students, their families, supervisors and community representatives on Friday, August 10 from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. in the Center for Advanced Engineering 130 W. Eighth St.
