Youth Plant Tours for Host Companies

Plant Tour Objective

To provide youth, faculty and government representatives with the opportunity to explore an see ''hands on'' manufacturing at leading edge companies.

Tour topics 

Should focus on the importance of manufacturing:

  • Highlight number of employeed, why it would be cool to work at your organization.
  • What are your current challenges and how you think youth can help?
  • Feature specific skills required to work there - from entry level to specialized areas.
  • Feature anything that is being done ''radically'' different - What's Your Wow Factor?
  • What you are ding to grow, innovate and remain competitive in today's global marketplace?


We suggest that approximately 15-30 minutes be used to do opening presentations, telling a bit about your company and what they will see on the tour. Your presentation should include:

  • Housekeeping (Evacuation, washrooms, tour etiquette, safety requirements)
  • Brief company history / background / what you do
  • What the tour will focus on
  • Blueprint of plant and the flow of the tour through the plant

Please keep in mind that the participants will be anxious to get out on the shop floor as soon as possible after their arrival. The tour should be 60 minutes in duration and be focused.

We also request that there be at least 15 minutes set aside at the end of the tour for questions and answers and feedback.
