CME in partnership with Skills Canada Manitoba has developed the Youth in Manufacturing program where Students in Grades 9 and 10 will have the opportunity to tour a local manufacturing company to learn about their processes and the careers available in manufacturing.

Imagine if you could tour a local company and see the creation of a three dimensional design on a computer, see the transfer of the design to a computer numeric control machine and then get to see the finished product? This program will expose students to manufacturing processes from design to the building and assembling of a product and ultimately the marketing and sales process.

Students in Grades 9 and 10 will have the opportunity to tour an exciting, innovative local industry learning about their manufacturing processes which allow them to compete in the global marketplace. The students will spend the remainder of the day at Red River College touring areas key to manufacturing. They will then create a special project using the information and insight that they have gained throughout the day.

The experience will allow students to observe and try hands-on activities in the many varied areas key to manufacturing in addition to learning about their options for secondary and post-secondary programs so important for career planning.

Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) is the premier association for manufacturers and exporters in Manitoba offering the ability to reach a broad audience of both large and small manufacturing business owners, related support organizations and the education system in Manitoba.

A key focus for CME is to support the growth of a skilled and educated workforce. The driver behind our initiative is the youth-targeted Discovery Program. The Discovery Program was designed to introduce high school students to a variety of future career paths in the manufacturing sector, while developing their skills and encouraging them to have fun experiencing the manufacturing process, from research and development through to product launch! By using their education, creativity and innovation, student teams will use supplied parts to design and build a radio controlled hovercraft and prepare a written business plan, allowing them to demonstrate the skills required for success in the workplace. Student teams participate in the province wide semi-final competition for an opportunity to move on to the final competition where they will be competing for scholarships and bursaries sponsored in part by; Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology, Red River College, and University of Manitoba.

Partnership with the Discovery Program provides an effective way for your company to promote the importance of education, team work, problem solving, and skill development to future and existing workforce. Associating your business with the Discovery Program also heightens your profile as a leader and a partner committed to strengthening and improving the manufacturing and exporting community.

This Discovery Program partnership offers a unique opportunity to maximize the visibility of your company. and puts your team in front of youth, business leaders, and governments from the manufacturing sector. Investing in our youth today, will only strengthen or workforce for the future.
