CASE STUDY: Exposing High School Juniors & Seniors to Manufacturing Careers

Project Prepare, an outreach program through the Career and Technical Centers of Licking County (C-TEC), helps build the talent pipeline by introducing high school juniors and seniors to the opportunities available in manufacturing and skilled trades.

The program combines in-school presentations and company tours to help students decide if a manufacturing career is right for them. Project Prepare has expanded to nine schools and reaches more than 500 students each year. The program also targets adults who are unemployed and underemployed.

More than 20 Licking County manufacturers have signed on as Project Prepare supporters.
