Five local advanced manufacturing companies will roll out the red carpet this week to show Cincinnati Public School students the path to career stardom runs straight from the doors of high school to the manufacturing floor.
On Thursday, February 28, and Friday, March 1, 80 students from the Cincinnati Public School district ranging in ages from 15 to 17 will tour one of four advanced manufacturing companies in the Greater Cincinnati area to see first-hand what employment right out of high school might look like – and pay like. Advanced Manufacturing Industry Partners (AMIP) is coordinating the tours.
AMIP is an employer-led regional collaboration of more than 240 members in Southwest Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeast Indiana. AMIP’s goal: change students’ perceptions of manufacturing and show them why employment in advanced manufacturing right out of high school is every bit as desirable and rewarding as a college degree.
