Green Bay Packaging Green Bay Mill Division is hosting the Green Bay Engineering and Technology Career Explorers group February 3, 2014, for an educational tour focusing on environmental engineering, education, and career opportunities.
The Green Bay Engineering and Technology Career Explorers, started in September 2013, is a Learning for Life career education program for young adults ages 14 (who have completed 8th grade) through 20. The program was created with the purpose of giving information about careers and mentoring of the engineering fields through hands-on projects, guest speakers, tours and discussions. The group meets twice a month throughout the school year with qualified, successful men and women in the field.
“Participation in programs like this has helped students obtain college endorsements and an increased opportunity to secure a job in this field after graduation,” said Nancy Quirk, Explorer Adviser, and General Manager at Green Bay Water Utility.
Green Bay Packaging, along with other Green Bay area companies and utilities, is a founding member of the local program. For more information about the program, visit http://exploring.learningforlife.org/services/career-exploring/engineering/.
