EM Richland Operations Office contractor Central Plateau Cleanup Co. hosted 20 college interns and cooperative education students this summer as part of an initiative to build and inspire the future workforce. The program offers local students employment opportunities at the Hanford Site while they earn a degree, preparing them for potential careers in the nuclear cleanup industry. Program participants work a one-year internship — part time during the school year and full time in the summer — in areas such as engineering, finance and project management. Central Plateau Cleanup Co. is working on a formalized agreement with Columbia Basin College and Washington State University Tri-Cities to grow and foster the co-op program.
