A business needs to consider its future if it wants to stay successful. That's why Climax believes in developing its future workforce. To do so, the company shares its learning through its Community Campus Internships Program. This program allows students to link academic work and career interests with real world workplace experiences. Students explore their own creativity and are provided opportunities to use innovative thinking in solving problems. The experience has 1) changed their lives, 2) enriched the lives of co-workers and 3) demonstrated the value of a unique partnership between schools and business. It's an innovative approach that you will want to hear about.

- Build strong relationships with your community leaders.
- Educate your community about your company and its culture.
