FAME 5% Pledge – Sign up today!

Building the Pipeline for our Regional Advanced Manufacturing Sector

To succeed, manufacturers need a skilled workforce, strong business model, leadership and a thriving community. In the Rochester region, poverty and unemployment are increasing. It has become a challenge to find qualified workers. Now is the time to unite and pledge to expand our workforce and long-term prosperity as business leaders in the community.

Make the 5% Pledge!

We are asking you to pledge 5% of your current workforce to the future. That means that for every 100 employees in your organization, you will strive to provide five temporary positions for interns, high school students, and/or the long-term unemployed as a method of exposing them to the manufacturing culture through experience. In turn, these workers will gain valuable skills and experience to guide them as they become the workforce of tomorrow.
