Dream It. Do It. is a national manufacturing careers recruitment strategy developed in 2005 by The Manufacturing Institute. Minnesota is one of approximately 33 states currently participating in the Dream It. Do It. effort, which was created to attract workers to fill the approximately 600,000 open manufacturing jobs in the U.S. Its focus is to increase awareness of the high paying, high quality career opportunities available in manufacturing.

Do It. provides useful information to inspire and build a talented pipeline of youth who understand what manufacturing is and what skills and education are needed to prepare for a career in manufacturing.
