Happy National Apprenticeship Week!

This week is the second annual National Apprenticeship Week. Higher has been looking at apprenticeships as a strategy for career laddering for refugees, and we think there is a lot of potential for refugees to take advantage of the Registered Apprenticeship program, but our network is only in the beginning stages of figuring out how to help our clients access these great opportunities.

We can provide a lot of information, but we need your help to discover the frontline strategies and best practices for connecting refugees to apprenticeships!

apprenticeship-eventsThis week provides a wonderful opportunity to learn about apprenticeships. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there are 313 events planned in 47 states which will provide information on the registered apprenticeship program.

Although we are a couple days late in putting this on your radar (apologies!) there are still many events scheduled for the next 3 days.

Click here (or on the image above) to see if there is an event happening near you!

You can also learn more about apprenticeships by reading Higher’s recent post on Registered Apprenticeships or by checking out the ApprenticeshipUSA Toolkit.

If you have experience matching refugee clients to Registered Apprenticeships, we would love to highlight your success story! Get in touch at information@higheradvantage.org.
