Dream It. Do It. TN is a campaign designed to promote and encourage careers in the manufacturing sector.  The goal is to attract young adults into manufacturing careers and expanding education and training opportunities to meet a growing shortage of skilled employees.

Since 1912, the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce & Industry has served the manufacturing community of the state as the Tennessee Manufacturers Association, and now has partnered with the University of Tennessee Institute for Public Service, Center for Industrial Services, and ASSA ABLOY Door Group to develop and implement the youth recruitment initiative of The Manufacturing Institute, part of NAM, known as Dream It. Do It.

Manufacturers need to attract the next generation of talent for global success. Manufacturing careers offer good salaries and exciting opportunities to be on the cutting edge of new technologies and products. Today’s youth as well as those who influence their career choices need to be informed on all that manufacturing has to offer.

 

Manufacturing in Tennessee – Dream It. Do It. TN

ABOUT DREAM IT. DO IT.

Dream It. Do It. seeks to foster economic growth by creating a skilled workforce. The campaign helps young people identify what they are passionate about and find fulfilling careers in manufacturing, where the average annual compensation is $63,000 – 20 percent higher than in the rest of the economy.  The campaign also seeks to broaden awareness about today’s manufacturing careers – from being a test engineer for an mp3 maker, a designer for a mountain bike manufacturer or a software developer at a computer game company, to a product manager for a high-tech eye scanning security device.
