Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano, along with the Center for Science Teaching and Learning (CSTL), the Long Island Forum for Technology (LIFT) and the Composite Prototyping Center (CPC) today announce plans to train 100 Nassau County young people with the skills required by today’s composite manufacturers and to assist them in finding employment opportunities. CSTL recently received a $440,000 grant from the Toyota USA Foundation for this unique initiative in which private industry is helping advance manufacturing skills.

County Executive Mangano stated, “This exciting new program will train students with hands-on composite manufacturing skills and assist program graduates with finding employment opportunities in the field. This is great news for our youth, the American manufacturing industry and our local economy.”

The training program seeks 100 underemployed or unemployed career candidates who have already obtained a High School Diploma or GED, are 19-25 years old and have the commitment to continue on this training pathway to success. Companies such as Precipart, Nordan Composite Technologies, Curtiss Wright-Target Rock and Photonics Industries have committed to hiring graduates of the program. Candidates interested in participating in the program should call the Center for Science Teaching and Learning at (516) 764-0045.

Michael Rouse, President of the Toyota USA Foundation, stated, “The Toyota USA Foundation is committed to supporting the American manufacturing sector to strengthen our economy. By helping students discover their interests in manufacturing careers now, we can cultivate their talents and passions to bolster this critical field for the future.”
