Creating the Manufacturing Experience for the Next Generation

SJVMA has partnered with the Manufacturing Institute of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM)’s DIDI program.

DIDI is designed to promote manufacturing to K-12 students and the entire community through marketing and awareness campaigns, student ambassadors and tours of manufacturing companies.

Every first Friday in October is DIDI’s nationally celebrated Manufacturing Day. In Fresno and Madera, hundreds of students participate in tours of local facilities and other activities to learn about and celebrate manufacturing.

If you are a manufacturer interested in more information about hosting Manufacturing Day student tours, please email us at
