Why We Chose this Employment Pathway Demand Side Employment Driven The employers have the jobs Apprenticeship is a great platform to discuss an ongoing solution Apprenticeship for the most part offers a

guaranteed position Structured training and ongoing supports Win-Win-Win / Individual / Employer / Community How We Collaborated for Success Starting from nothing is equal parts Market research is critical Who should be a partner Community Leaders
