The U.S. Department of Labor defines apprenticeships as industry-driven career pathways where employers can develop and prepare their future workforce and individuals can obtain paid work experience, classroom instruction, and a portable, nationally recognized credential.
According to USDOL, 94% of apprentices who complete an apprenticeship retain employment, with an average salary of $70,000.
Apprenticeships have become a proven vehicle for providing young adults, ages 16 to 24, with meaningful work experiences and a solid footing in career pathway development.
On Wednesday, August 25th, from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM, our next MAX Academy will focus on how to develop successful apprenticeship programs for our emerging workforce. Through this virtual workshop, we will learn about how a Local Workforce Board and Technical College have each been able to generate valuable outcomes for youth and employers alike through their apprenticeship programs. Joining MAX will be program leaders, employers, and graduates from programs based at Lanier Technical College and WorkSource Cobb.
We look forward to you joining us for our next MAX Academy!
