Whirlpool Corporation recently hosted 30 youths with Youth Solutions, Inc. Jobs for Michigan's Graduates (JMG) from Benton Harbor High School to participate in a hands-on "Grill Empire" simulation. Informed by company observations, Whirlpool Corp. developed the supply and demand game to demonstrate how to solve problems collectively.

JMG youth and their Whirlpool Corp. mentors used model grills made out of LEGOs and were tasked with creating a process to plan, sell, and ship products to consumers. The "Grill Empire" experience was a chefs-kiss success that brought mentorship, process improvement, and project-based learning together.
