Greetings, all

Did you know that 16-17 year olds ARE ABLE to participate in internships, pre-apprenticeships, or cooperative work experiences on the production floor? There’s a good deal of confusion in the field about this, and we’re excited to bust some common myths.

For more details, visit

As we all know, these sorts of experiences are so important for exposing and exciting our students about careers in manufacturing. With the legal issues out of the way, I’d love to talk about what a meaningful work-place experience looks like for these budding manufacturers.

Please feel free to share the link with others!
