Five Core WIB Roles
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.
