GLOW With Your Hands Live Event
The GLOW With Your Hands Live Event launched in September 2019 and occurs annually on the last Tuesday in September. This experiential career awareness and exploration event that connects a wide array of businesses from the Genesee, Livingston, Orleans, and Wyoming County area (GLOW) with students and educators from 28 school districts in the GLOW region. Employers showcase in-demand careers in Agriculture, Food Production, Manufacturing, and Skilled Trades. The incredible hands on engagement has students laying bricks, spreading concrete, welding, drive heavy equipment, learning the vast technological advancements in agriculture, diving into equpiment used in advanced manufacturing and more. Career professionals with these companies have meaningful conversations with students about what a day in the life looks like, job outlooks, income potential, and the variety of pathways into these careers. Students learned about the direct relevance of their course work in middle and high school (what classes they should be taking), BOCES programming that aligns with career development, and post-secondary training, certifications, and/or degrees that are needed to work in these fields.
