Using Summer to Teach Kids About Manufacturing Careers

Posted by Kristen Haning on Jun 25, 2018 3:37:56 PM

More Ohio kids than ever before are being exposed to manufacturing careers by attending summer camp, thanks to an initiative Senator Sherrod Brown started six years ago. WIRE-Net will again be taking part in this initiative, supporting the second manufacturing camp held in Cleveland since Brown started these camps in 2013. The Cleveland camp, one of more than 19 taking place in Ohio this summer, is an initiative of the city's chapter of My Brother’s Keeper, which works to connect male students of color with community leaders through mentoring relationships and educational events.

National Apprenticeship Week is Here!

Posted by WIRE-Net on Nov 15, 2017 10:36:34 AM

This week marks the third annual National Apprenticeship Week (November 13-19). We are excited to take part in this celebration with so many other companies, individuals, and educators that are making a difference through apprenticeship programs. We believe apprenticeships work for everyone—from the business owner looking to recruit highly skilled and talented workers, to the job seeker wanting to advance their career. It works because youth and job seekers can earn while they learn, and employers can develop the talent they need to compete today and tomorrow.
