Manufacturers Host Student Tours February 2022


While Manufacturing Month is the month of October, we need to inspire the next generation of manufacturers year round, and educate the public at large on the importance of the role manufacturers play in our daily lives.  Everyone knows about the growing skill shortage despite the high volume of job openings in our sector.  So how do we change that?

    • Change the perception of careers in manufacturing to reflect its true status as the most advanced, high-tech industry in the country.
    • Re-establish the U.S. as the global leader of manufacturing education.
    • Make Florida a top 5 manufacturing state by 2030.
    • Advocate for education and job training policies that strengthen the manufacturing workforce.
    • Provide resources to the Suncoast Manufacturers which help them overcome growth obstacles.

The ultimate goal is to help manufacturers build a steady pipeline of qualified and diversified manufacturing talent to help build and support local economies for decades to come.

We can do that by getting grade school students excited about a career in manufacturing.  Hosting student tours is a great way to accomplish that.
