Please join us in congratulating the Aerospace Internship Class of 2020!
This year, 42 high school students graduated from the AIP with valuable work-readiness skills and hands-on experience working in the aerospace industry. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 school closures, their time was cut short in March, but interns were able to continue working towards their National Career Readiness Certificate from home.
Skills would like to express our gratitude to the interns for their hard work and dedication to the program. We would also like to thank everyone that had a hand in their success including family and friends, instructors, supervisors, mentors, school administrators, community partners and donors.
Skills Inc. is proud to support National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). Held each October since 1945, NDEAM aims to educate employers about disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of American workers with disabilities. This year’s theme is “The Right Talent, Right Now.”
For over 50 years, Skills Inc. has been a leader in inclusion and disability employment by focusing on the strengths and abilities of our workforce. We take great pride in serving our community while supplying quality goods and services to the aerospace and technology sectors.
Skills Inc. encourages all employers to embrace diversity while promoting a culture of inclusion so that everyone can thrive. Take part in NDEAM by participating in one or more of the below events. The Office of Disability Employment Policy, (ODEP) website also provides various ways to celebrate the month, including “31 Days of NDEAM – What you CAN do!”.
On May 18th, Skills Inc. partnered with the City of Auburn to host the 2nd Annual 5K for Abilities. Hundreds of participants joined us for a beautiful and fun filled morning while we increased disability awareness, built community relationships, and celebrated people of all abilities.
We were honored to have so many community members and partners show their support, including Auburn Mayor Nancy Backus who started the race off. A big thanks to all that helped make this event such a success!
