Appr week 2023.jpeg

The 9th Annual National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) 2023 starts today! Check out these resources published this morning in honor of NAW: 

This year NAW’s theme is “Registered Apprenticeship: Superhighway to Good Jobs,” to reflect the prominence that Registered Apprenticeship has received as a proven and industry-driven training model that expedites the pathway into good jobs and improves diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) in the workplace. 

NAW 2023 is already off to a great start. Employers, educators, labor unions, elected officials, community-based organizations, and other partners across the country are hosting over 1,230 events and have signed over 370 proclamations, surpassing our goals and making this a historic record-breaking year!  They are hosting all types of events including open houses, industry roundtables, apprentice graduations, career and trade fairs, and panel discussions with an emphasis on diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in apprenticeship opportunities.   

There are several ways for you to still get involved in NAW 2023:  

We hope you will join us all week as we celebrate the 9th Annual National Apprenticeship Week and we thank you for all of your support!

The US Department of Labor has approved the Language Acquisition Research Foundation's THREE Apprenticeship for Tech programs! These programs were developed with the guidance of CompTIA to bring diversity and change to the Borderland! Traditional training has failed to keep tech talent local for the past 30+ years! Ultimately, we need to pay GOOD TECH TALENT better wages than a door greeter at Wal-mart! $10-12/hr for an A+ certified technician? Best Buy should be ashamed! Join our fight, improve your IT department, help change the IT landscape in the Borderland! Check out our website for more information!
