RochesterWorks! and Monroe County Department of Human Services have partnered with the Young Adults Manufacturing Training Employment Program (YAMTEP) to provide another benefit to individuals involved in the Work Experience Program. In just 90 days, YAMTEP bridges basic skill gaps for entry level employment in manufacturing that many individuals receiving benefits from the Department of Human Services face. “Students are taught basic manufacturing skills, attendance, punctuality and soft skills,“ says training founder Tyrone Reaves. “This allows them to enter into the workforce and become valuable and productive employees.” If an individual is not hired by the program’s end, RochesterWorks! sponsors a job fair exclusively for those completing this program. YAMTEP partners with several community agencies and strategic partners to obtain higher success rates. To date, YAMTEP has completed three series of trainings and has successfully graduated more than 25 people from the Work Experience Program. This type of training is very practical for a population requiring marketable skills and a quick turnaround time to employment opportunities for lucrative futures.
