Manufacturing Career Awareness ~ Next Tour Date October 2018

Tour Day

In 2017 the VIA helped to coordinate over 800 tours of our member companies. We work with groups like VALEESDAOES, and other area Education for Employment offices, schools and groups to help our members make connections. Every year we coordinate tours surrounding Manufacturing Day (MFG DAY) in October, which is a national effort to increase public awareness of careers in Manufacturing. Our VIA tour day is on October 3, 2018  with MFG DAY on October 5th.  We just completed the April 25th Tour Days almost 300 student visits were made that day.

Please think about adding your company to our list of tours for October 3, 2018.   Please  Email us as we coordinate another round of tours to help our members meet their future workforce needs!
