Accounting firm UHY Advisors recently held their 2017 "UHY Connect" summer program last month, in which over a hundred students across the country were able to see the day-to-day life of staff members and network with professionals before their college graduation.

A notable part of the Connect program is participation in charitable endeavors, with all students helping serve the local communities that UHY serves.

“Each year we host UHY Connect to allow college accounting students to take a deeper look at our firm and learn all they can about its people, culture and environment," stated UHY recruiting manager Rina Henning. "Students work together on a community service project, and participate in panel discussions and a social team building activity."

This year's charitable activities included sorting approximately 8,000 pounds of food at Gleaners Community Food Bank in Detroit and a campus cleanup project in New York.

"We believe it is important to potential recruits to see our commitment to the communities we serve," added Henning.
