COLUMBUS— State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) today announced Ohio’s New Manufacturing Mentorship Program, which was included in the state budget this year.


Through the new Ohio Manufacturing Mentorship Program students ages 16 and 17 will be allowed to work part-time in a manufacturing facility under the guidance of a mentor. This program, which Rep. Romanchuk sponsored in the budget, will provide current high school students with real experience and exposure to manufacturing careers.


“In this year’s budget cycle I wanted to tackle the growing need for manufacturing workers in our state,” said Rep. Romanchuk. “Under this program high school students will get to see firsthand what a good-paying career in manufacturing is like, and it is my hope that many manufacturing employers will take part in the program.”


The program will be effective soon. They are currently implementing rules with the Ohio Department of Commerce.
