Manufacturing Career Awareness ~ MFG DAY October 3, 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 and have a Job Fair in Aurora scheduled on October 5th,  (MFG DAY).  Already in 2018  with our Spring Tour Day on April 25th  almost 300 student visits were made on that day.

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