Join the Alliance
The AWMA exists to educate students, parents, and teachers in our communities about skilled trade jobs in the manufacturing industry.
Not only is manufacturing a solid post-grad path to pursue—in many ways it may even set students up to achieve success quicker than a traditional college route.
For starters, many of these students would join your team as students in hopes of full-time employment at a later date. This allows you to provide all the training and coaching needed while they're still in school so by the time employment comes around, they can jump right in.

My driving force for being here in the classroom is as an employer. I don’t feel that we are getting quality kids in the technical fields. Maybe I could have a positive influence to get better students involved in this as a career choice.Kevin Morris, Norwell instructor | Auto Technology
