It addresses common misperceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers an opportunity to open their doors and show what manufacturing is — and what it isn’t. To match up with Manufacturing Day, which takes place on October 5th this year, the state of Ohio celebrates Manufacturing Month the entire month of October.

WIRE-Net continues to hear about the critical workforce challenges that Northeast Ohio manufacturers are experiencing and the questions they have around how to be more innovative and effective with talent management. One of the ways that WIRE-Net is assisting to bridge this gap and meet manufacturers needs is by offering internship opportunities to high-schoolers at Max S. Hayes High School and Parma Senior High.

Since its inception in 2013, the WIRE-Net youth internship program has provided a steady and sustainable pipeline of permanent employees to participating companies and provided students with real-world experience to learn skills required for jobs and careers in the manufacturing industry.

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.
