Pathways to Apprenticeship Program a Model for Connecting Talent to Opportunity
Posted on May 31, 2021
Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh, Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon, CenterState CEO and other community partners announced recruitment is underway for the first class of Syracuse Build’s Pathways to Apprenticeship program. This comprehensive, paid, 11-week apprenticeship readiness training program is designed to help the local workforce, particularly women, people of color and veterans, gain access to the Building Trades’ registered apprenticeship programs and prepare them for the significant number of construction jobs being created by federal, state and local infrastructure investments, including I-81. CenterState CEO’s Work Train initiative is helping connect resources and partners for the Syracuse Build initiative and the Pathways to Apprenticeship program.
The program has already received more than 400 responses to the initial call for applicants, which will result in a highly competitive pool of potential candidates.
