National Manufacturing Day in Char-Em ISD – online!

2020 dates: Oct. 6, 7, 8, 9

Each fall, many Char-Em ISD school districts participate in National Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) activities with regional manufacturers, giving students a behind-the-scenes look at these important job opportunities in their own back yard!

About the event: Area middle and high school students will have the opportunity to once again tour some of the region’s most unique, innovative and important manufacturing facilities, in a new way for 2020. Online tours will be provided to students to keep the momentum of MFG Day going in our region!

Video presentations will take place during school hours at schools throughout Antrim, Charlevoix, Cheyboygan and Emmet counties.

Area students will learn first-hand about the skills they’ll need to enter the manufacturing workforce. Local parents are encouraged to talk to their children about the high-paying, in-demand job opportunities for their students right here in Northern Michigan! 

Thank you to our local manufacturing partners for creating video tours for our students!
