Elevating the Importance of Manufacturing Careers for Youth

Commitment by

Corning Incorporated

In 2014, Corning committed to will pilot a program that will consist of a series of workshops for youth, ages 15 to 21. The first workshop will involve a tour of a manufacturing facility, offering a first-hand view of what working in a factory is like and the workshop will include interaction with employees and management. Two subsequent workshops will focus on work and life skills needed to obtain these jobs, such as having the basic math and English skills central to passing an entrance exam, the importance of attendance and proper dress and presentation in the workplace, and basic financial education on salary, taxes, banking and saving for life events and retirement.
