With a grant from the Boeing Company, the National Fund is implementing an on-the-job training program in five communities across the country. The goal of this project is to assist 200 job seekers and/or incumbent workers acquire in-demand advanced manufacturing skills. Participating employers will be able to fill open positions and introduce more racial and gender diversity into their workforce – and in manufacturing occupations generally. Additionally, this project will develop employer leaders who can advocate for public policies to encourage investments in skill development and work-based learning opportunities.
