A new plan to keep and bring qualified workers to Cleveland.

One organization is trying to give the city a so-called “brain gain.”

Students who participated in the Summer on the Cuyahoga program celebrated in the Terrace Club at Progressive Field on Tuesday night.

The program targets college students from across the country, placing them in internships at some of the best companies in town. It also takes them on tours around the city to show what it has to offer. Then it encourages them to return to Cleveland to work full-time after they graduate.

“Let’s get the best and the brightest of young people to discover what a great city this is with the opportunities that are here,” said Jean Koehler, executive director of the program.

This summer, 72 students worked at 45 businesses, including Key Bank,Jones Day and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.
