MIDDLETOWN - Embrace Homes Loans has kicked off a partnership with Year Up Providence with a $2,500 donation, according to a company press release. The partnership also includes training and mentoring by Embrace executives for interns from Year Up Providence, an intensive one-year training program that provides low-income, at-risk young adults, ages 18-24, with hands-on skill development, college credits and corporate internships.

Five Year Up interns will begin at Embrace in January and be mentored by Embrace President Kurt Noyce and four of the company’s production vice presidents – Cary Humphrey, Jeffery Cordeiro, Jared Maxwell and Ken Pratt.

“To introduce these students to a corporate environment and for them to learn and contribute, I believe the relationship will work both ways,” Pratt said. “We will also learn from them.”
