Celebrate the eighth annual National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) and honor the 85th Anniversary of the National Apprenticeship Act with the Hub as we highlight our partners in a week-long interview series, spotlighting different RAPs across the country.
National Apprenticeship Week was established to celebrate the significant impact Registered Apprenticeship Programs (RAPs) have had in rebuilding the economy, advancing racial and gender equity, building a pipeline to good, quality jobs, and supporting underserved communities.
The Hub will be showcasing our partner organizations’ great work to advance equity and workforce development through RAPs.
