At CPAC, we take great pride in giving back to our local community in a multitude of different ways.
Giving back to students and local community colleges, such as Oakland and Macomb, through the power of education is one cause that we are especially proud to be a part of.
The MAT2– the Michigan Advanced Technician Training Program
This program is an innovative, industry-driven approach to education which helps provide students, and potential future employees, a three year career pathway to success. It is an apprenticeship program where students alternate between classroom instruction and on-the-job training, gaining the necessary hands-on skills and real-world experiences for them to become a successful and productive member of the skilled workforce.
We are a proud sponsor of Put On The B.R.A.K.E.S. (Be Responsible And Keep Everyone Safe). A non-profit 501(c)3 whose mission is to prevent injuries and save lives by training and educating teenage drivers and their parents about the importance of safe and responsible driving.
A Michigan Works! Participant
This program introduces area students to local businesses and careers. Talent tours are given by an employer in coordination with the local school and Michigan Works! Northeast Consortium. The tours show students what industries are located close to home, insight into what training is necessary to work in these industries, and can provide incentive to bring them back to northeast Michigan after college. During a Talent Tour, students visit a business to see what happens in a real day of work. We hosted two groups of students (52 total) from Rogers City and Posen. Students were surprised to find an international company right in their backyard! Jan Kalus of Posen said, “What I found most valuable was the information about how this industry is developing and about how and where the different parts they manufacture are used.”
In addition, we are proud supporters and/or sponsors of:
