Guest speakers will focus on the theme of the day, “Exposing the youth of NJ to careers in manufacturing.” Programs to be discussed include Dream It. Do It.’s Young Manufacturers Summer Academy and the “What’s Cool About Manufacturing” video contest. Also we will hold a panel discussion on MechaForce, our implementation of Germany’s Dual Education Model.
ManufactureNJ (M-NJ) is the name of the Advanced Manufacturing Talent Network, a program funded by the NJ State Dept. of Labor and Workforce Development and hosted at the NJ Institute of Technology. M-NJ reaches out to manufacturers in the state to determine skills needs for their workers, communicated them to educators such as community colleges and CTE schools so that certification and degree programs can be developed for job seekers and NJ youth to take to have successful careers in manufacturing.
