High School Students! Are you...


Uncertain about your career?

Curious about manufacturing?

Looking to jumpstart your future?

Be sure to take advantage of this unique opportunity to Discover Manufacturing! You owe it to yourself to get the information you need to get your tough questions answered directly  from professionals in manufacturing. "Manufacturing has been a great learning experience for me.  I learn new things all the time." "I never thought manufacturing would offer so many positions within the office  environment, such as purchasing, sales, technical, accounting and human resources." Talk to your counselor, get signed up and see modern manufacturing for yourself!This day-long field trip will expose you to potential job pathways and the skills needed to successfully enter the world of manufacturing in North Central Illinois! In 2017 over 300 students visited North Central Illinois area manufacturers for a morning tour. Then, students gathered at the Illinois Valley Community College’s new Peter Miller Community Technology Center in Oglesby to eat lunch, participate in a career expo featuring a number of local manufacturers, listen to speakers, and speak directly to local manufacturing employees about their choice to begin a career in manufacturing. Join the participating local area manufacturers! Attend the Discover Manufacturing Expo for about 400 High School Students on October 23, 2018 and take control of your future!
