GLOW with Your Hands
GLOW With Your Hands launched in 2019 with more than 800 students engaging in hands-on experiences focused on high growth, good paying careers in the GLOW Region (Genesee, Livingston, Orleans and Wyoming) of New York. Demonstrations in advanced manufacturing, agri-business, construction, energy, and skilled trades filled the Genesee County Fairgrounds in Batavia.
The GLOW Region's team of businesses, education agencies, workforce development offices, economic development leaders, and volunteers have developed this GLOW with Your Hands companion website to provide on demand career video content highlighting opportunities available right here in our GLOW region, ladders of educational pathways to employment, and a panorama of programs and events designed to excite students about the world of work, create career awareness, and offer exploration. Your future is in your hands.
GLOW With Your Hands thanks all the schools, students, businesses, vendors, volunteers and sponsors that make GLOW With Your Hands a success, and encourages you to join us at our next GLOW With Your Hands event in September 2023!
“I think the opportunity for students to see it and then participate in it hands-on just makes it a piece of information that is going to stick longer. [Students] hear the titles of these jobs, but they don't really know what they are. [GLOW with Your Hands] really allows students to connect the job title with what that job entails.”
