Education

We have a role to play in supporting the communities that build and use THOR Industries products. We've focused on three areas where we can have the greatest impact. For young people in our hometown, we've developed an innovative and hands-on education program to introduce them to career opportunities in their own backyard in the recreational vehicle industry. For our associates, we've implemented professional development programs to help them advance their careers. Finally, we've taken a strategic approach to our philanthropic efforts and created new partnerships that will have lasting benefits for all who enjoy the outdoors.

LEAP Program

The LEAP program supports local school districts in providing applied learning and real-world experience for their students. The three curriculum levels, fifth grade, eighth grade and high school, provide students with a differentiated educational experience to meet their varying needs.

Certifications and Training

We’re providing professional development opportunities for our associates to increase their earning potential and, ultimately, build stronger communities. 

Select THOR subsidiaries launched online learning and certification programs as well as a technical training academy. Combined, these programs represent an investment in our workforce, which has helped make THOR the largest manufacturer of recreational vehicles in North America.

Leadership Development

We partnered with the University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business to design a specialized curriculum focused on the recreational vehicle industry. 

This rigorous executive education program prepares THOR’s leaders to address today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities. The partnership with the University of Notre Dame is a unique way to support our associates, help them hone their leadership and management skills, and better our industry and our communities. 

We are eager to share the many impactful sustainability initiatives Erwin Hymer Group has undertaken as we continue our integration of EHG into the THOR Industries family of companies.
