Manufacturing Days

Manufacturing Days

The Manufacturing Days Tours program is a series of one-day events held in conjunction with National Manufacturing Day. Taking place the first Friday in October, National Manufacturing Day celebrates those who proudly stand behind our goods and services in America.

As part of YCAL’s mission, partnerships are formed with various manufacturers to allow school group tours to be scheduled throughout the weeks surrounding National Manufacturing Day. This program exists to help foster the connection between industry and education, to realign many common misconceptions of the industry, and to promote the many career opportunities in manufacturing while celebrating the significant contributions York County makes on a global level. YCAL partners with The Manufacturers’ Association who is instrumental in promoting the program to their members.

Typically, over 200 students visit more than 15 different manufacturing facilities annually through this program.

Thank you to the Manufacturers’ Association and our partners in Manufacturing for their support and willingness to host our students!
