The Baton Rouge Area Chamber (BRAC) has announced the graduation of 23 participants from its InternBR program. 

InternBR, presented by Gallagher and sponsored by Hannis T Bourgeois, is an initiative of BRAC’s Talent Development program designed to invest in young professional talent and assist area employers with talent attraction and retention. The program provides post high school-age students with professional development training focused on soft skills. 

The class of 23 area interns attended weekly sessions throughout June and July, each centered on a specific area of professional development. The program began with an opening retreat focused on the qualities of effective leadership and communication and culminated with participants using their newly-learned skills during a mock interview session conducted by community human resources professionals.  

Other focus areas included personal branding, professional communication, behavior preferences, and leadership styles. The students also engaged in professional, service, and social opportunities to learn more about the Capital Region.
