BASF Introduces High School Students to Technical Careers

BASF ranked No. 23 on the Fair360 Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2023.


Eighteen high school students recently completed BASF’s TECH Academy, a week-long educational and workforce development program.

TECH Academy encourages students to learn more about technical and craft careers through experiments, demonstrations, field trips and interactions with industry professionals.

The academy is free for students thanks to funding from BASF and is hosted at River Parishes Community College. The application process is open to any Ascension Parish Public Schools student in Louisiana or child of an employee or contractor rising to their junior or senior year of high school interested in technical careers.

“At BASF, we value being part of our local community and engaging with young people who are preparing for their futures,” said Jerry Lebold, Senior Vice President and General Manager of BASF’s Geismar site. “TECH Academy is a great opportunity for students to learn about the many manufacturing-related career options available to them right here in Ascension Parish.”
