MR had a great kick-off session with the Chicago CRED community. MR will be providing training, internships, full-time job placements and retention supports through our Young Manufacturers Association program for Chicago CRED clients interested in learning about and pursuing career paths in manufacturing. Training gets underway this month. We’re excited for this new partnership helping Chicago’s young adults get good career-track jobs in manufacturing.
One Chicago CRED program organizer said, "The MR team received one of the best receptions from the guys in their program that I've seen compared to other training providers. I was expecting 6-7 guys would sign up, now we have guys who had already signed up for other programs who now want to switch to do the MR program."
Chicago CRED -- Creating Real Economic Destiny -- is an anti-gun violence organization co-founded in 2016 by Arne Duncan, a former U.S. Secretary of Education and CEO of Chicago Public Schools, and Laurene Powell Jobs, the founder and president of Emerson Collective, a Palo Alto-based social impact organization.
