The Manufacturing Careers Internship Program (MCIP) provides youth ages 18-24 an opportunity to explore meaningful and productive careers in manufacturing.
Simultaneously, the program addresses the critical shortage of qualified workers in the manufacturing sector. The MCIP has been very successful with a large percentage of the youth currently employed or pursuing post-secondary education.
Developed by Business and Career Services in partnership with Medusa Consulting Group; The MCIP is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor and theIllinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) through the Chicago Cook Workforce Partnership.
This turnkey program is driven by the needs of the manufacturers to find and train skilled workers. It starts with a four week "Manufacturing Boot Camp" and ends with an eight-week paid internship at a local manufacturing company. It provides mentoring, guidance, skills training, and the hands on work experience needed to help youth transition into a rewarding career in manufacturing or to pursue additional post secondary education and training.
