Manufacturing Month

The state of Wisconsin has declared October as manufacturing month so shout out to all of our manufacturers and thank you for providing a pathway to a technical career for our youth!  Here are a few ideas on how you can celebrate:

  • Hold a virtual event highlighting manufacturing jobs for students and parents
  • Make a point to do business outreach to manufacturing companies in your area that are not participating in YA
  • Hold a virtual event featuring women in manufacturing
  • Highlight a student that has achieved success YA through manufacturing (ensure written consent by student/parent/guardian)
  • Highlight an employer that has achieved success through YA in manufacturing (ensure written consent by employer)

Check out the WMC and DWD websites to learn more about Manufacturing Month and how you can get involved!
