Clarification on the Informational Session advertised on the OACES website (January 03, 2019 – February 5th, 2019)

OACES apologizes for a misunderstanding that occurred in the advertising for the recent Information Session held on January 26th.  To clarify:  no jobs are “guaranteed” by completing the intake and training process described during this information session.  Employment is contingent upon the internal selection process of the partnering business at the end of the training period.

The goal of the informational session was to attract job-seekers who wanted to work in a manufacturing career and to share this unique opportunity for under-employed or unemployed persons who are motivated to begin a new career in the manufacturing/ packaging industry.

Following the information session, participants would engage in a five-day intake process that included a series of activities and observations that would prepare them for a referral to an interview with a local manufacturing company.  Upon being selected and hired, individuals would be trained in the OACES manufacturing/ packaging program.

The goal of the twelve week (12) OACES manufacturing/ packaging program is to provide a group of participants training that has been specially designed for entry-level employment in the manufacturing/ packaging industry.  Through a combination of classroom lessons, independent projects, and program activities, students will learn and demonstrate the essential skills required for employment in the manufacturing industry.

After participants are identified/ hired and enrolled in the training program, they will begin receiving substantial support during the training program and an industry internship.   A case manager will meet with participants a total of 6 times throughout the training program, gathering information from participants, teachers, and the employer supervisor, resolving problems and providing valuable feedback.  The partners will meet following case management meetings to support participants.

OACES is a workforce preparation organization that assists individuals with obtaining employment, enrolling in college, and/or attending occupational training.  OACES serves thousands of residents in the City of Rochester, who often are the most vulnerable, without a high school diploma, and many living in poverty.

Last year over 600 students were enrolled into one of eight (8) in-demand, short-term, specific occupational trainings that lead to industry recognized, transferable, stackable credentials.  The training programs are approved by both NYS Department of Labor and NYS Education Department.  These training programs work.  Students get and keep jobs!
