You are invited to join NFPA and Ridgewood High School, an NFPA Fast Track school, on Wednesday, January 10, 2024, for an in-person Workforce Engagement Group meeting.


Main discussion topics include “How to Get Involved in Ridgewood’s CTE Program;” Hiring High School Students and Offering Internships;” and, “Team Based Competition Learning.” Members will also participate in a fluid power focused table-top (6ft tables) connection event with Ridgewood students. The students want to learn about your company, products, and services through hands-on product demonstrations.  Ridgewood staff also mentioned that students respond well to candy, treats, or swag.
