Support Workforce Efforts in Your Local Area

In May of this year, the Workforce team of NFPA sent out a Workforce Education/Community Survey to NFPA members asking if/how they were involved with their local schools. The results that were received showed a great deal of involvement. Of the 81 responses we received, 70% said that they were involved with their local schools. 16% with middle schools, 38% with high schools, 33% with two-year technical schools and 38% with four year universities.

Some examples of the involvement are: 40% through internships, 19% through mentoring, 14% through the Fluid Power Challenge and 11% through component donations.

NFPA has created some exciting programs for our members to get involved with their local schools.

If you would like more information or have any questions please contact Lynn Beyer, Workforce Program Manager,, (414) 778-3364.
