Helmer Generosity hosted the 2017 Career Day in conjunction with Dream Alive this past week. Career Day has become an annual event and is looked forward to by students and Helmer team members alike.
Fifteen students from Harshman Magnet Middle School visited helmer where they participated in a hands-on learning experience. Eight Helmer ushers escorted the youth on a company tour to learn about the processes involved in producing medical-grade cold storage products. From working with the engineering team on 3D modeling, powder-coating products in fabrication, and using rivet guns to assemble key chains to keep as souvenirs, everyone had an opportunity for hands-on learning. This was followed by participating in a quality inspection and learning how to trouble-shoot technical issues.
Working with Dream Alive to provide experiential learning for at-risk youths has become an important part of the Helmer Generosity program.
