How does it work?
- As an employer, you will work with MAGNET to design a custom training program to suit the needs of your company and hire students for two-year internships.
- Students selected for the program will apprentice at least one day per week with your staff on the shop floor and learning how to function in a manufacturing environment - all while earning college credit.
- Based on their performance, you can offer the student(s) a job offer after they graduate from high school. This can include full- or part-time employment.
This is the first youth apprenticeship program of its kind in Northeast Ohio, and it's being piloted right here with companies like you!
