In 2010, VWEA and VA AWWA jointly established a new “Work for Water” Committee to begin to enhance the visibility and image of a career in the water and wastewater industry. The initial, currently ongoing, activity is contact with school districts throughout Virginia to identify career counselor directors and to determine the nature and schedule for current career exploration programs in each school district. When identified, the committee participates in elementary, middle and high school career fairs and makes presentations to career counselors and provides them with resource materials about careers in the water/wastewater industry. Future activities include exploration of Workforce Center career fairs, summer youth programs, year-long programs, and apprenticeship programs throughout the state. The committee also intends to work with the Virginia Department of Education to encourage the addition of water and wastewater career opportunities on the state’s “knowhowvirginia.org” career exploration web site.
