NAF Academies that offer the Advanced Manufacturing program will address the acute need for workers to fill 21st century jobs – workers who are qualified, tech literate, and have manufacturing and production knowledge. The program for high school students provides not only the technical skills, but also a full appreciation of the manufacturing ecosystem, so they can pursue opportunities in this growing sector.

Launched in 2017, through a collaboration between NAF, Cimarron Memorial High School in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Intelitek, the program provides students across the nation with access to a pathway that will create economic opportunity and enable more students of all backgrounds to succeed in STEM careers.
