As a manufacturer you understand better than most that getting the next generation of young people interested in advanced manufacturing careers is challenging. It requires exposure and education to change the misperceptions that parents, teachers, counselors and students have about manufacturing. Do you have the time to dedicate to this important cause? It takes a plan.
When manufacturers partner with DIDI-NJ, we can change the perception of manufacturing…together!
Working with many other manufacturers, we can share, show and engage today’s youth, your next skilled employee, about the exciting careers in manufacturing.
ManufactureNJ (M-NJ) Talent Network and Dream It. Do It. (DIDI – NJ) plan and organize stimulating, hands-on events for New Jersey’s young people in grades K-12. Through activities, tours, competitions and guest speakers in advanced manufacturing, the students learn about careers and training that exists today and will be needed in the future.

Become part of MechaForce. This program is an educational pathway to a career in advanced manufacturing. MechaForce is adapted from the German Dual Skills model of formal and hands-on learning in appropriately equipped modern training labs and on the job. MechaForce provides the student with a structured and sequential educational, apprenticeship and career pathway leading to a high school diploma, college level associate’s degree, and industry certification. Of course, the student has the option of continuing on for a bachelor’s degree. Throughout MechaForce, learners are shaped so that they are career-ready, at many levels, for future employers offering great salaries!
MechaForce students are highly motivated and talented students and come from across New Jersey. The one common characteristic which all the learners share is their interest in preparing for roles in advanced manufacturing, specifically mechatronics and metal technology, in order to fill a workforce gap.
