Industry for a Day

Interested in an immersion experience for educators? Join us on Wednesday, May 15 for the fourth annual Industry for a Day, presented by Bank of America! 

WHO: Teachers, counselors and education leaders. Funds are available to help subsidize substitute costs for Multnomah County School Districts on a first-come, first-served basis (districts will
receive a stipend of $200 per participant who requires a sub, until funds are exhausted).

WHAT: A hands-on immersion in manufacturing and construction career pathways at local industry sites. Both breakfast and lunch will be provided. No registration fee.

WHEN: Wednesday, May 15, 2019 from 8:00am to 3:30pm.

WHERE: Morning program including breakfast at Pacific Northwest Carpenters Institute (4222 NE 158th Ave) followed by site visits to two industry sites. These will include construction sites,
manufacturing sites and/or training centers.

Career opportunities in manufacturing and construction are abundant throughout the region — but are we growing the local talent needed to fill these high-skilled, family-wage jobs? Come
gain tools and insights to help students find their career pathways!

“I learned that there is such a need for these jobs and that kids can be paid to learn—the converse of what students generally expect at college!” -Teacher Participant in IFAD 2018
