The Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) is looking for members to volunteer for its new Teacher Ambassador Program (TAP).

 

According to CPIA, the TAP initiative is intended to spread a positive message about the plastics industry to Canadian school children across the country, by having industry members go into classrooms and deliver a prepared presentation to students at elementary grade levels.

 

“The TAP provides an innovative way of helping to teach our students about the excitement and science of plastics, while encouraging them to consider plastics in a new light, or possibly as a viable career choice,” said Mark Badger, the CPIA’s president and CEO.  

 

The CPIA is looking for key individuals in member companies who would be willing to visit between 10 to 12 local schools per year to deliver the presentation and answer any questions, Badger continued. The TAP initiative is scheduled to begin in September.
