Spreading the Word about Manufacturing Careers


Manufacturing Day is October 2nd!

Kansas City Kansas Community College Technical Education Center (KCKCC-TEC) is celebrating ‘Manufacturing Day’ on October 2, 2014.  Please see below on how we could use your help.

In partnership with MAMTC, Manufacturing Institute, KC-NTMA, KCMN, A&E Custom Manufacturing and GM we will be celebrating ‘Manufacturing Day.’  We will be inviting young adults from Kansas City, Kansas Public Schools and Leavenworth Public Schools to be a part of this great day.

The event includes a career jumping session during lunch time at the GM Plant in Fairfax from 11:15- 12:10.  Career Jumping is a fast-paced career exploration experience where professionals talk with 3-5 students at a time, much like speed dating.

Are you interested in sharing your career story and helping spark students’ interest in careers in Manufacturing? Then share your time and your talents and volunteer!  If possible we are looking for all the colors in the diversity rainbow to represent the different career choices in manufacturing. In addition if we have any ladies in the careers mentioned on the agenda that would be fantastic.

To volunteer, or to discuss other opportunities to share career advice with a broader student population at future events, please contact Rich Piper at RPiper@kckcc.edu or 913.288.7808.
