The Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME) has announced a new educational initiative designed to provide high school and college students with access to valuable educational resources and constructive hands-on learning experiences. The AME Adopt-a-School program connects students and their schools with manufacturers in their area to give them an in-depth look at the world of manufacturing.

Manufacturers that join the program have the opportunity to give back to their community while helping local students expand their horizons. Manufacturers can participate in activities such as hosting students on tours of their facilities, visiting schools to give talks offering insight into their industry, mentoring interested students, and promoting valuable internships.

Schools in the program provide their students an insightful look at careers in growing manufacturing industries across the country and offer them learning opportunities outside the traditional brick and mortar walls.

For more information or to become a participant in the program, contact AME Education and Training Director Nancy Wajler (nwajler@ame.org).
