UGI Participates in Camp STEAM in Mount Carmel and Shamokin School Districts
18 Jul 2017
Two UGI employees recently participated in an integrated learning experience called Camp STEAM held at Mount Carmel High School for students in Northumberland County.
The Camp is a two-week experience for students who have completed 10th grade. It focuses on careers in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. Students from Mount Carmel and Shamokin School Districts who enrolled in the Pennsylvania CareerLink’s Bridges to the Future In-School-Youth-Program were eligible to attend the event.
Camp STEAM activities focused on career exploration through business tours and employer guest speakers and presentations. Workshops also addressed “soft skills,” financial literacy, entrepreneurial skills and leadership.
UGI employees Lucas Dietrich and Eric Worgen from the company’s Shamokin office demonstrated a number of skills necessary for employment in the natural gas utility industry. Through employee volunteerism and financial assistance, UGI has supported a variety of K-12 education initiatives that promote skilled, technical jobs as a good-paying, stable career path for youth.
