A state-of-the art career center for middle and high school youth in Beloit? You bet! Located in the Ironworks Corridor at 625 Third Street, Suite 200, Hendricks CareerTek engages youth in the Greater Beloit community in career exploration and hands-on learning opportunities designed to provide participants with valuable skills, insights and experiences that inform their career thinking and lead to future employment. Many of these opportunities directly complement skills in high demand by today’s local workforce, such as coding, healthcare, construction, trades, manufacturing and entrepreneurship.
to inspire possibility and challenge the children of our community to dream big
Core to the work of the Hendricks Family Foundation is the desire to inspire possibility and challenge the children of our community to dream big. Our partnership with the Stateline Boys & Girls Club
to support the work of CareerTek in providing opportunities for youth to explore their interests and pursue their career pathway dreams is one example of that mission in action. But don’t just take our word for it:
“…From career exploration events and field trips to two scholarships, I am so thankful for everything CareerTek has given me over my high school career! This summer I will be graciously earning my CNA license through CareerTek’s CNA scholarship! I am excited to start working in the healthcare field, and without CareerTek, that wouldn’t have been possible. With the help of the CNA class as well as this scholarship, I will be attending Edgewood College this fall to study Medical Sciences with an emphasis in Diagnostic Medical Sonography. I am so grateful for this scholarship and all of the opportunities that I have been able to participate in through CareerTek. The experiences are incomparable, and I highly recommend getting involved with CareerTek!”
