Young people from Austria visit LR and Lunch Club

The LR Global Kids Fund supports children's aid projects in many countries. For the first time, two initiatives now got together and met in Ahlen. Six young people from the social housing community "SoWo" in Neunkirchen (Austria) travelled to Westphalia and spent exciting days there. They were given the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of LR Health & Beauty and visited the Lunch Club Ahlen.

Austrian afternoon at the Lunch Club

The young people from Austria and the children from Ahlen organised an Austrian afternoon together on Tuesday. Wiener schnitzel and potato salad were a must, of course. The next day, a tour at LR Health & Beauty was on the agenda. “It was important to us to not only present the company but also give the young people practical tips. After all, many of them will soon enter the job market. We want to show them which jobs are offered at LR and how these look in practice”, explained Björn Zeuge, Facility Manager at LR. Together with his team, he organised the programme for Wednesday morning.

Getting to know the activities and jobs at LR

The young women and men visited the laboratory, where the products of LR Health & Beauty are developed, the warehouse and dispatch line. Here, they were allowed to put their questions to the employees and also to carry out small tasks themselves. Moreover, they visited the LR Media Factory, where all brochures are being designed. “The day at LR was incredibly exciting. I particularly liked the fact that we received a lot of background information on the individual professions, for example, which training is needed for the jobs“, stated Sarah from the SoWo. On Wednesday afternoon, the young people and their supervisors went to Münster for a guided tour.
