Titans of CNC highlighted Glendale Community College’s Uniquely Abled Project in an episode dedicated to the advantages of CNC workers with autism.
Ivan Rosenberg, AMP SoCal Executive Council member, founded the Uniquely Abled Project at Glendale Community College to facilitate opportunities for uniquely abled individuals to have successful jobs. The project gives the opportunity for people on the autism spectrum to work in an area they’re naturally wired for: CNC Machining.
In May, the program was visited by Titans of CNC founder, producer and star, Titan Gilroy, and his son, Tyson Gilroy, to provide inspiration for the participants of the project. Titans of CNC is an elite Northern California CNC machine shop, and also a TV series airing on MAVTV that promotes American manufacturing, CNC machining, technical education and job growth. During the Titans of CNC visit to Glendale, Gilroy described his experience when learning about his son’s diagnosis and how they came to realize Tyson’s talent and passion for CNC Machining.
The eleven-minute video goes on to showcase and inspire the students of the “Uniquely Abled Project” by telling Tyson’s story and relating it back to the unique opportunities these students have with the project.
