Outreach programs will help dispel the image of the "grease monkey."
Raising Awareness and Interest
The consortium is working on expanding outreach programs to raise awareness and interest of
students, parents, teachers, and counselors in automotive careers. Staff from local Regional
Occupational Programs (ROPs), high
schools and Cerritos College will organize a series of meetings and workshops to dispel the image of
the "grease monkey" and highlight the lucrative careers in the auto sector. The outreach strategy
will also include working with middle-schools to organize tours of the SCCTT's facilities and
develop one-week technical summer camps.
