    “Thank you to YOU and the City of Kalamazoo for allowing Bronson to host Bridget, Ebube, Felix and Simone this summer! All of the employees who interacted with these students were so impressed with their maturity and commitment to the program. They were engaged and always had a positive attitude. It was inspiring to work with the youth in our community and know the future of healthcare is in good hands!” - Bronson Methodist Hospital, a YOU employer partner
