CAMC Youth Outreach Committee
Recently, CAMC formed a Youth Outreach Committee, made up of manufacturers, educators and local partners.  Our mission is to increase exposure of the manufacturing industry to local high school students.  After three meetings, the group has decided to move forward with our first initiative, a job-shadowing program. 

If you would like to be a part of this initiative, contact mcordano@camw.net.  A special thanks to our CAMC Youth Outreach Committee!
