Inspire Your Future Workforce, Virtually

NALP has partnered with Pathful Connect (previously NEPRIS) to help prepare students for careers in the landscape and lawn care industry!

Pathful joins educators and learners with a network of industry professionals, virtually, bringing real-world relevance and career exposure to students. Pathful also provides a skills-based volunteering platform for organizations to extend education outreach and build their brand for the future workforce. 

What does Pathful do? 

Pathful provides the technology to engage employers to develop the talent pipeline and prepare the future workforce. By providing the technology, it gives us our industry a platform to share with students and educators an exciting world where landscape and lawn care professionals care for the environment where we LIVE, WORK and PLAY.  Students will gain a real-life understanding of a professional career in the landscape and lawn care industry by integrating academic skills, personal interests, and industry specific competencies. The platform helps remove barriers to reach students, provides educators the tools they need for career awareness, and makes it easy for landscape professionals to share their skills and expertise to students across the country.

All industry professionals are welcome to participate, including lawn and landscape professionals, state associations, industry-specific national associations, college educators, suppliers, manufacturers, and more.
