Get Involved in Workforce Development Activities

A number of opportunities to connect with students, review scholarship applications, and more are available in the coming months.

  • On November 5 from 1 pm – 3 pm CST, NFPA will be hosting a virtual Networking Mixer with Fluid Power Vehicle Challenge participants and members of industry. Taking place in a speed meeting format, this event will allow industry representatives to exclusively connect with up to 6 to 8 students at a time in segmented Zoom breakout rooms. Please reach out to Stephanie Scaccianoce at sscaccianoce@nfpa.com with questions or to participate.

Please reach out to Stephanie Scaccianoce at sscaccianoce@nfpa.com with questions or to participate.
