PGT Innovations, the Venice-based manufacturer of windows and doors, is partnering with Sarasota County Schools to offer a new program called "Pathway to PGTI." Students spend two hours of each school day at PGT Innovations, with part of that time dedicated to classroom training at PGTI’s new on-site training center and the rest of the time working alongside a skilled mentor.  The program offers hands-on training in a variety of industrial jobs such as industrial maintenance mechanic, automation technician, welder, and tool and die maker. It also teaches the young workers organizational and time management skills.
