A five-day Ready to Work Manufacturing Boot Camp was designed to prepare high school graduates for immediate high-demand careers. Students, were hand-selected by their school guidance counselors, visited Silver-Line Plastics, Southern Eagle Distributing, Phoenix Metal Products, Walmart Distribution Center and Pursuit Boats.

The boot camp arose out of the St. Lucie EDC’s 2017 Skills Gap Initiative and the Workforce Readiness Task Force, which works to bridge the gap between the region’s current workforce skills and those that will be needed by area employers in the future.
