What People are Saying about the MBA
Tours are very important to grow connections between the students and the working world. We need more things like this so students can start to prep themselves for life after high school.
“There is still a lot of misnomers on what manufacturing is….our partnership with MBA helps people get that exposure on what manufacturing really is.”
Through MEC, with our own internal boot camps, as well as working with MBA, it helps keep good talent in this area.
It is great having a partner like the MBA because they focus on working with the schools and manufacturers and having a middle ground.
My son recently went on a tour of three local manufacturing companies set up through the Markesan District Schools. He was surprised with the variety of careers and jobs that were available. I would highly recommend this to all high school kids, even if they think they know their plan right after high school.
TOURS AND SPEAKERS
The MBA collaborates with schools to introduce students to careers in manufacturing. Manufacturing tours are set up at least once annually, and we coordinate career panelists and speakers. Reach out to MBA if your school would like a manufacturing tour or career representative to speak to your class!
We help manufacturers connect with high schools to develop Youth Apprenticeship programs.
We connect schools with community projects that students can make in the class and to manufacturers who can help complete their project. From bike racks to grills, let’s showcase the work of our students in our communities.
