Educational and Sports Children Center – Terex Latin America
Terex Latin America supports education and encourages good citizen actions, discipline, commitment, building and strengthening underprivileged local community children self-confidence through sport activities and providing them access to job market.
We have 85 children (ages from 6 to 15 years-old) from local community attending for soccer classes and education support at our company plant.
We provide full structure and sponsorship on the sport practice (breakfast, meals, uniforms, football boots), and keep close school performance evaluation.
Classes take place for one and a half hour on Saturdays, in a semi-professional soccer field. Children must keep good grades in order to be able to participate on the project and the ones who have higher grades and discipline are invited to work in our company as minor apprentices when they turn 16 years-old.
Terex Latin America also plans actions as per annual activities calendar: soccer players celebrities lectures, art and culture events and professional health area orientation and monitoring visits by dentists, nutritionist and physicians. Recognition prizes based on their annual performance, building and strengthening their self-confidence.
We align Terex Latin America actions with one of its values, Citizenship, being faithful to its own principles and putting them into practice. Developing in their team members pride of being part of it. Terex Latin America has positioned itself in local community as a good corporate citizen and the best place to work at. We invest in human development.
