Manufacturing offers all of these for your students, and also provides them with a way to pay for college.

Help them get on the path to success with Early College Early Career.

your students will receive:

  • Hands-on training and practical application of manufacturing skills
  • An opportunity for students to pay for college
  • Access to certifications and credentials that open the door for more opportunities
  • Firsthand experience with the latest in modern technology
  • A position with a local company that could lead to multiple job offers

How does it work?

  1. If a student is selected for the program, a local company will hire them for a paid internship 1-2 days per week.
  2. Students will be trained on various manufacturing capabilities and develop "soft skills" like critical thinking - all while getting credit towards an associate's or bachelor's degree (they can also earn industry-recognized certifications that are transferable).
  3. Mentors from the company and ECEC will support students by guiding them along their journey and, depending on the student's performance, the company may extend a job offer upon graduation, which can include full- or part-time employment.
