Teens from BGCTC’s Mt. Airy and East Side Clubs visited the Carmeuse plant in Savage, MN on August 3 to learn about their company operations and manufacturing processes. Carmeuse is a global manufacturer of lime and limestone products used in a variety of applications, which
provide cleaner air, safer water, and improved soil characteristics. Teens also learned about Carmeuse’s culture, career and job opportunities, and got the unique opportunity to sit in the driver’s seat of a Carmeuse heavy equipment simulator – which was a lot of fun!
BGCTC teens also had the opportunity this summer to visit the Minneapolis FBI Headquarters, gaining knowledge about the day-to-day operations of FBI, ERT, and SWAT divisions, and the Minnesota Twins and Old Navy where they spent time learning about how to bring their personal passions to their future careers.
Through career days with our Corporate Partners, teens gain selfconfidence and self-efficacy to transition into post-secondary education in pursuit of their career aspirations. They also have the opportunity to make professional connections through networking that create pathways to a successful future beyond high school graduation.
