Supports: Building the future manufacturing workforce through the Dream It! Do It! Education Campaign – the manufacturing awareness program targeting 6 to 26 year olds.
Golf tournament funds help support STEM programs in all schools and colleges in the area, such as: the eight Volusia County Schools manufacturing related career academies, the new Pine Ridge High School Manufacturing Academy, Flagler County Schools, scholarships, Robotics and 3D Competition cash prizes, donations to ERAU student Robotics Association. VMA has purchased 3D printers, computers. Academies have used $$ to fix machines, e.g. 3D printers, participate in robotics competitions and buy machines. In 2015, VMA hosted 80 school counselors and teachers with its first ever Manufacturing Champions School Counselor Bus Tour.
Over $71,000 has been contributed to the development of our future workforce to date. The VMA Education Committee makes funding decisions based on how a Grant Fund Application influences the future decisions of an individual; directly affects the career choice of individuals; enhances a manufacturing education environment; and enhances the skills of student mentors and teachers.
