Outreach to College Students

APWA offers a number of resources to help our agencies and chapters reach out to children as early as kindergarten through high school, and even into their college years. Some exciting ways to involve college students are highlighted in the Local Student Membership Initiative toolkit.

The "What is public works?" webpage and the "I Am Public Works" video contain information helpful in introducing students to public works.  Also check out the job board, Member Directory, Member’s Library, Resource Center and APWA Connect. These resources will provide an opportunity for students to learn about the public works profession and make valuable connections with public works professionals like you!

The Young Professionals Network and the Student Outreach Network are groups which can also provide resources for your outreach efforts.
