They discuss the "First Step" program which is a school-to-work program designed as an opportunity for high school students. They work closely with the Lansing Board of Water and Light to perform an internship-like experience. If the students complete this program they are awarded a scholarship to Lansing Community College. The two discuss expansion of this program over the past 8 years, along with employment in the Lansing area.
