College interns are learning the ropes in the office at companies throughout Metro Detroit this summer and they’re also seeing all the incredible new events and developments going on Downtown through a five-year-old program aimed at introducing talented young professionals to life in the city.

As part of the After5 Detroit Intern Program, thousands of students are getting a unique chance to rub elbows with other young professionals at networking events at some of Detroit’s coolest venues as well as getting a first-hand look at what’s driving one of the most transformative developments in the city’s history.

Interns were welcomed into The District Detroit on July 19 at a special event held at MotorCity Casino Hotel where they learned about the exciting new development underway in Detroit that’s connecting Downtown to Midtown and injecting long-overdue investment back into neighborhoods surrounding the Fox Theatre and Detroit’s existing sports venues, with new residential, retail and office developments alongside Little Caesars Arena.

About The District Detroit

The District Detroit will be made up of a dynamic mix of sports and entertainment venues, including six world-class theatres and three professional sports venues – home to the Detroit Red Wings, the Detroit Tigers and the Detroit Lions. The District Detroit will also feature retail and residential developments, offices and hotels that connect these venues into one contiguous, walkable area, where families, sports fans, entrepreneurs, job seekers, entertainment lovers and others who crave a vibrant urban setting can connect with each other and the city they love. A Michigan Made, Detroit Built project, The District Detroit continues to transform lives by bringing jobs and opportunity to people and businesses across the city, region and state.
