The week of May 19-25, 2019 was National Public Works Week (NPWW) which was an opportunity for public works agencies and professionals to bring positive attention and awareness to the thousands of unsung heroes who help provide for the safety citizens, maintain infrastructure and provide services throughout the United States. The Ventura County Public Works Agency hosted an educational Public Works Day event on Tuesday, May 21, 2019. Members of public were invited to participate in various activities and demonstrations.
At the County Career Booth, high school students had the opportunity to fully explore a range of public sector careers, as well as student worker opportunities. Staff were on hand to share their experience with graduating seniors about STEM-based careers and professions that involve being outdoors such as, landscaping, surveying, construction and other exciting opportunities.
This event provided a wonderful educational experience for your students, giving them a unique opportunity to connect with VCPWA staff members while learning about a vital organization that is dedicated to providing and sustaining Ventura County.
