AKT is a proud sponsor of MFG Day 2015, a national celebration of the manufacturing industry, demonstrating the potential of modern manufacturing and the opportunity for careers.
In honor of MFG Day 2015, AKT has partnered with three regional trade associations to award a Certificate of Recognition to one manufacturing member of each organization.
To celebrate the recognition of these three manufacturers, AKT is making a donation in the name of each recipient to three organizations that work with youth in disciplines that support manufacturing professions.
- Clackamas Academy of Industrial Sciences (CAIS), providing students an innovative, contextual learning environment focused on Manufacturing Technologies.
- Impact NW: Pathways to Manufacturing, an incubator for high school aged children designed to address industry workforce needs, help lower the drop-out rate, and provide clear pathways to rewarding careers in manufacturing.
- For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST), showing students of every age that science, technology and problem-solving are not only fun and rewarding, but are proven paths to successful careers and a bright future for us all.
