About the Center

Join a growing group of employers, community colleges, workforce agencies, intermediaries, youth programs, labor organizations, policy experts, and others across the country who are advancing apprenticeship and work-based learning strategies as workforce development and talent solutions for American businesses. The Center for Apprenticeship and Work-Based Learning provides expert guidance on how to identify and share effective approaches that work for companies, students, and workers.

The Center also plays an important role in highlighting innovations that expand opportunities for people of color, women, opportunity youth, people with disabilities, and others who have traditionally been underrepresented in career advancement opportunities and well-paying jobs.

With an unprecedented influx of federal funds and a renewed energy around expanding apprenticeship to new industries, occupations, and communities, now is the time—and here is the place—to come together to strengthen and expand the modern American apprenticeship infrastructure.

We believe in the power of apprenticeship and work-based learning, and we believe that with better access to the right information and support, this emerging community can drive this movement forward, improve people’s lives, strengthen the American workforce, and provide American businesses with the skilled workers they need to grow and prosper.
