National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) is partnering with The Corps Network to connect entry-level workers with landscape professionals across the country. Corps are locally-based organizations that engage young adults and post-9/11 veterans in work experience to develop in-demand skills.
Pathways to Landscaping Careers, will provide an opportunity for lawn and landscape companies to hire young adults (generally ages 18 - 25) and veterans (up to age 35) for internships or full-time employment. Corps members, many of whom have landscape experience, will be matched with companies in the following metro regions for the Fall 2019/Spring 2020 Pilot:
Atlanta, GA ¡ Austin, TX ¡ Baltimore, MD ¡ Denver, CO ¡ Gulfport, MS ¡ Los Angeles, CA ¡ New York, NY ¡ Philadelphia, PA ¡ Phillipsburg, NJ ¡ Sacramento, CA ¡ Saint Paul, MN ¡ Stockton, CA
Companies utilizing NALP’s Landscape Management Apprenticeship Program may choose to enroll qualified Corps members in this program upon hire. Corps members will be actively supported by their Corps even after employment with a landscape contractor is secured, including mentoring, access to career and personal counseling, and workforce-related supportive services.
