ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill.—The Association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME) has revealed its new educational initiative, designed to provide high school and college students with access to valuable educational resources and constructive hands-on learning experiences. The AME Adopt-a-School Program connects students and their schools with manufacturers in their area to give them an in-depth look at the world of manufacturing.

Manufacturers that join the program have the opportunity to give back to their community while helping local students expand their horizons. Manufacturers can participate in activities such as hosting students on tours of their facilities, visit schools to give talks offering insight into their industry, mentor interested students and promote valuable internships.

Schools in the program provide their students an insightful look at careers in growing manufacturing industries across the country and offer them exciting learning opportunities outside the traditional brick and mortar walls. A number of high schools have already joined the program, including Lafayette High School in Virginia, Wheeling High School in Illinois and Portland Arts & Technology High School in Maine. A full list of schools onboard with the program is available on AME's Adopt-a-School website.
