Sylvia Matthews Burwell said, “Job training empowers people to realize their dreams and improve their lives.” An innovative training program called “Dream it. Do it” is helping youth in the Fremont, Nebraska region improve their lives by giving them the opportunity to test out careers in manufacturing.

The program is a public-private partnership between the Greater Fremont Development Council, Fremont Public Schools, Metropolitan Community College and local manufacturers. Through the program, high school seniors take classes at Metropolitan Community College and then complete a paid internship with one of the participating businesses during the following semester.

Matching skilled young workers with hands-on training and potential long-term opportunities is positive for everyone involved. Learn more about this exciting program!
