Feature of the Month:
Brown Bag Apprenticeship Program

Through Polished Pebbles’ partnership with the national non-profit organization, Mentoring USA, the girls of Polished Pebbles are able to participate in the Brown Bag Apprenticeship Program. This career-oriented mentoring program provides opportunities for Bloomingdale’s Chicago employees to mentor young ladies at three of our after-school programs.

Polished Pebbles are able to tour the stores and learn about the inner workings of the retail industry, develop personal relationships with Bloomingdale’s employee mentors, and participate in job shadow days that allow them to put their communication skills to practice in the workplace.
