About the Dream It Do It Program
Look around you. Almost everything you see was manufactured: the laptop you’re surfing on; the chair you’re sitting in; the shirt on your back; the phone in your pocket. Today’s jobs in manufacturing are less about assembly lines and more about technology. They require skill, innovation, and a commitment to quality. 85% of the manufacturers in the United States are having difficulty filling open positions in their companies. The Dream It Do It program was created to educate the next generation workforce about careers in Advanced Manufacturing.
