About AMP

Advanced Manufacturing Practicum was founded by Buschman Corporation, a Cleveland manufacturer, to help with workforce development in the city. While the manufacturing sector in this country continues to grow, it is becoming more and more difficult to fill these well-paid jobs.

Exciting things are happening in Cleveland and we want to be a part of turning this once booming industrial giant back into a caring, growing and thriving city with the manufacturing jobs needed to employ the young people who are our future.

Our broader vision is to encourage manufacturers in Cleveland to join with us and empower students to Learn, Earn, and Return back to our community.

Our Vision

Empowering students to…


Students have the opportunity to practice skills learned at school in a real-world manufacturing environment.


Students earn a paycheck while learning skills necessary to succeed in the well paid manufacturing sector.


The program helps prepare students to be successful members of the community.
