Discovery ChalleNGe Academy
- May 2, 2019
-- Nationwide Boiler Inc. hosted over thirty students and teachers from the Discovery ChalleNGe Academy last week (the 'NG' refers to the National Guard for whom sponsors the program). The tour was a part of the Academy's two-part field trip to educate students on the many education and career opportunities available to them after graduation. Following their visit to San Jose State University, the Academy toured Nationwide Boiler's 26,000 sq. ft. shop in Fremont, CA, where employees demonstrated a diverse skill-set including mechanical abilities such as welding, pipe fitting, electrical work, fabrication, equipment assembling, and other technical skills. The students also learned about other professional career opportunities including accounting, engineering, sales, and marketing.
President & CEO, Larry Day, stated, "We are honored that Nationwide Boiler had the opportunity to be a part of this inspiring program. We feel strongly about educating our youth so that we can successfully sustain our business and our industry for future generations. That starts with giving them the necessary information on both education and career opportunities, but also alternative education like trade schools where they can choose from a variety of different technical skills to master. Those who choose to go the trade route can succeed monetarily, in a similar fashion to those who choose to attend a four-year college."
Located in Lathrop, CA, the Discovery ChalleNGe Academy was founded in 1993 to assist students in enhancing life skills, education levels, and employment potential. This military-style program houses, feeds, and educates sixteen to eighteen-year-
old young adults that were unable to complete high school due to varying circumstances, and allows students to earn 65 high school credits while developing valuable life skills.
