J.P. Licks loves finding ways to deepen our connection with our communities. Recently, we started working with Apprentice Learning, an organization connected to Boston Public Schools to improve Boston high school graduation rates and make the transition from middle school to high school a bit smoother. An eighth grader from a middle school near our Jamaica Plain headquarters has joined us for a 6 week internship this fall, coming in 2 hours once a week. She is half way through the program and even with only 6 hours under her belt, she has already learned what it takes to roast and package all the coffee we roast here in JP, how to start making an ice cream cake (and just how different it is from baking a cake!), what it takes to create a content calendar for the marketing department (even for just a three month period), and worked on improving our online delivery menus. Turns out there are benefits we never even thought of to having our ice cream makers, cakers, coffee roasters, bakers, and office all in one place - it exposes our interns to so many experiences and they can chose their favorites to focus on! Since this week marks her half way point, you know we’ll be celebrating with ice cream! Check out the Apprentice Learning website to see if your business could host a student or if your middle schooler can take part! https://apprenticelearning.org/about-us/
