Wayne County, in partnership with the Workforce Intelligence Network for Southeast Michigan (WIN) and Southeast Michigan Community Alliance (SEMCA), is coordinating its 3rd annual celebration of MFG Day. Last year, thanks to the willingness of 30 companies to get involved, more than 2,000 students visited manufacturing facilities, learned about career opportunities and post-secondary options for college.
Manufacturing Day (www.MFGDay.com) is a national celebration of modern manufacturing and the great careers it offers. In Wayne County we are focused on connecting students with employers and businesses that are a part of the Detroit area’s rich manufacturing history through facility tours. Our goal is to help manufacturers inspire this next generation to consider careers in this viable industry. This year, our goal is to provide an opportunity for 2,800 middle and high school students to visit area facilities and colleges. We cannot do it without you!
Wayne County’s effort is made possible by a dedicated planning committee of area leaders from industry, education, workforce and government.
