The Manufacturing Mentorship Program went into effect earlier this summer and allows students aged 16 and 17 to work in the manufacturing sector, regardless if they are enrolled in a career tech program. This is great news for companies who have positions for young interns or apprentices.
The Ohio Manufacturers Association has put together a guide for employers who want to participate in this program. This guide outlines the requirements for employing minors, what types of machinery they can use, special safety concerns, and more. The full guide can be found here.
