Setting measures for success for each program element is the next step in building a successful urban forestry career pathway program. See the example list below from section six of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Career Pathways Toolkit.
Be sure to avoid common pitfalls that many career pathway programs make. Unclear goals, a curriculum that is disconnected from employer needs, and programs that do not actually lead participants to full-time paid employment are more common than you may think.
These measures will help you set a strong foundation for your pre-employment program to support an urban forestry career pathway.
