During the month of November, the five Pasco County Tax Collector’s Offices will be accepting donations on behalf of AMSkills, a non-profit program created to prepare qualified individuals interested in learning skills to work in the manufacturing field. Based in Pasco County, AMSkills offers programs from entry-level training to job placement assistance throughout the Tampa Bay area.
“AMSkills is bringing hands-on skills training to youth and adults in low-to-mid income neighborhoods through the use of our Mobile Workshop and introducing them to great careers in the manufacturing industry,” states Tom Mudano, President & CEO of AMSkills. “Donations received will provide additional skills training to these individuals, free of charge, helping them to launch a new career they may have never considered before.”
“I have long been a proponent of technical education as an alternative to college, especially for those with talents and abilities that are best suited to manufacturing and technology,” remarks Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “We are more than pleased to support AMSkills during the month of November. We will work to raise funds so AMSkills can teach more students the skills that will benefit them in the real-life world of work. Please stop by one of our five offices in Pasco and donate to this important cause.”
