Toyota knows the value of having well-trained associates, especially in the manufacturing industry. That is why the Toyota USA Foundation is working to support technical programs across the country for both high school students and adults.
In total, Toyota will provide $5.8 million in grants to help create and expand these programs.
“The Toyota USA Foundation is committed to supporting the American manufacturing sector to strengthen our economy,” said Michael Rouse, Toyota USA Foundation President, in a statement. “By helping students discover their interests in manufacturing careers now, we can cultivate their talents and passions to bolster this critical field for the future.”
Grant recipients include Project Lead the Way in Indianapolis, Indiana, which will introduce a hands-on Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) program in 40 different high schools. They will receive $1 million over two years.
Here at Bill Walsh Toyota, we are proud to be a part of a company that is working hard to help create valuable learning opportunities for students all across the country.
