October 4, 2016 | Staff Reporter
Beloit will soon be home to Hendricks CareerTek, a state-of-the-art career center located on Third Street in the Ironworks campus, to provide career development, career education, and career opportunities to youth in the Greater Beloit community. Located at 625 Third Street, Suite 200, Hendricks CareerTek is being funded by a generous grant from the Hendricks Family Foundation to the Stateline Boys & Girls Club. Hendricks CareerTek seeks to partner with the School District of Beloit, the Boys & Girls Clubs, the Greater Beloit Chamber of Commerce, Irontek, and area businesses to provide community youth the opportunities to gain valuable insights into workforce demands, career pathways, and requisite skill sets.
Hendricks CareerTek is an exciting initiative by the Hendricks Family Foundation, responding to a need in the Greater Beloit region for career development and education for area youth. This facility represents a commitment by the Hendricks Family, and dedicated community leaders like Kim Bliss, Director of Community Development at Hendricks Holding Company and Board Member at the Stateline Boys & Girls Club, who collaborated with the foundation to bring this project to fruition. Through innovation and education, these leaders hope to connect students with career opportunities that exist in their community and throughout the region.
