Wesco International: Wesco and DTE Help To Build Young Entrepreneurs at JA BizTown

PITTSBURGH, PA / ACCESSWIRE / March 25, 2024 / Wesco International, (NYSE:WCC), a leading provider of business-to-business distribution, logistics services, and supply chain solutions, is pleased to announce the company's joint sponsorship with DTE Energy (NYSE: DTE) for the Tom Fox Family JA BizTown® program in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

This program for fifth and sixth graders begins with 12 in-classroom learning sessions that teach the basic principles of economics and the importance of economic exchange, revenue, how to manage money, fundraising, marketing, pricing, budgeting, loans, government structure, voting and various roles within a community.

This mini business town features 13 real local businesses represented by small storefronts. By connecting local businesses and school communities, it emphasizes the importance of education and the interconnectedness between those that live and work in these local communities.

"This partnership with Wesco supports an innovative educational space to help young people learn the skills necessary to steer our communities toward prosperity and growth," said Jaspreet Singh, Vice President of Corporate Services, DTE. "We're pleased to make this investment in their future and happy that it brings us closer to our valued customers in West Michigan."

Wesco's storefront includes a working stockroom with areas for in-bound receiving, outbound shipping, an EV delivery truck, EV charging station, workstations and display areas for product placement and sales. As Wesco showcases its organization to the students attending, the company also gives the students an opportunity to gain a basic understanding of the importance of supply chain and how goods and services get from one place to another.

This cutting-edge educational experience empowers future generations and gives them first-hand lessons in team building, collaboration, responsibility, decision-making and leadership.

James Cameron, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Utility and Broadband Solutions at Wesco, said "Supporting our customers in the communities we work and live is part of our foundational values. We are proud to partner with DTE to foster new opportunities for students to learn about their energy provider and how supply chain partners enable all parts of everyday life."

With over 20,000 students and 1,000 educators from schools across West Michigan, Southwest Michigan, Mid-Michigan and Northern Michigan visiting the center, Wesco can help raise awareness about a broad range of careers in supply chain management and operations.

Employees from both Wesco and DTE will be able to volunteer in their specially designed storefront at JA BizTown and interact with the students, as well as other visitors and business and community leaders.
