Workforce and Economic Development
The SCAC promotes the continued growth and strengthening of the automotive industry by partnering with state and local organizations in workforce and economic development. The SCAC works to advance SC Future Makers, the SCMA’s signature workforce development initiative. SC Future Makers is designed to connect South Carolina manufacturing and information technology companies with middle and high school students, technical college students, and four-year college students. In partnership with STEM Premier, the South Carolina Department of Commerce, the South Carolina Department of Education, the South Carolina Technical College System, and the South Carolina Department of Employment and Workforce, SC Future Makers tells the story of South Carolina manufacturing and information technology careers and demonstrates the educational and career pathways students can follow.
