Macomb County Host Sites
Macomb County needs host sites that are willing to offer a guided tour(s) for up to 30 students and the teachers or guidance counselors that will supervise them. This is your opportunity to let the next generation of our workforce know that interesting and rewarding jobs await them in the manufacturing sector. Host sites may choose to offer a morning tour and/or an early afternoon tour. A tour lasts from 90-120 minutes. Suggested activities include:
Welcome/Safety Rules/Meet our Company for the entire group – this is a great time for company leaders to talk about what the company does, who they hire, and what they offer for employees, especially if there are programs in place to help employees advance.
Three sub-tours that highlight different work areas and careers (including “front office” staff) so that students can rotate through each. This allows for smaller, more manageable groups of ten.
Opportunities for students to interact with employees who are enthusiastic about their jobs, as well as a chance to see the “product life cycle” in action.
