35.L&L – Kate Lee

As the weather warms, learning about gardening and biking have become among the most popular topics on Bendable. Kate Lee, meantime, is busy thinking about Summer Connect. Lee, who spearheads educational initiatives for the South Bend Regional Chamber, is putting together the internship program, which will help 140 or so young people plug in to local businesses while also using Bendable to learn. They’ll master foundational skills such as Excel, while those who are ready for more advanced concepts, like leadership, will have that option on the platform. “That,” said Kate, “is the beauty of Bendable.”
