APWA’s educational initiative supports two of APWA’s key strategic initiatives: “to create a series of awareness programs in various specific areas – promote outreach and public awareness to build identity, public awareness/support, broaden global perspective, and attract new members and affiliates. Explore a broader awareness and branding campaign for the APWA and for public works.”
Making our workforce the most competitive will be the key to ensuring the vitality of the public works industry for the future. This can only be done by preparing our young people for success in this industry from the onset of formal education. The K-12 APWA educational initiative supports the work to advance and promote outreach and public awareness of public works for school aged children in communities in North America.
