Is the ThinkBig Program Right For Me?

A successful candidate would have the following attributes:

The desire or skill to work with mechanical concepts and enjoy “hands-on” challenging work in a fast paced work environment.

Good work habits – achieving acceptable grades and attendance in High School.

Have a good moral foundation.

A typical candidate may have completed “mechanical skill based” classes such as Automotive while in High School, and would have had extra-curricular activities such as sports, clubs, working on cars/trucks/ATV’s/motorcycles or a part-time job. Typical candidates would have experience working with hand tools and would know that they enjoy working with their hands and taking apart and properly putting things back together.

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS?

To be considered for the program, each candidate will go through a face to face interview, complete job specific testing and be given a tour of our Yancey Bros. Co. facility.

The Think BIG program has a limited number of spots each year and therefore students must gain a ‘sponsorship’ from one of the participating Caterpillar Dealers to attend. We will notify the candidates of our final choices prior to the school year starting in August.

Along with being chosen to represent Yancey as a student in the program, you will also be required to meet the qualifications and be accepted into the South Georgia Technical College program.

Payment for the college courses will be the sole responsibility of the student. The program does qualify for the HOPE Grant.
