Registration for Virtual Events: November 9-12, 2020

In celebration of National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) 2020, the California Workforce Development Board (CWDB) presents PAVING THE HIGH ROAD TO A RESILIENT ECONOMY: the power of pre-apprenticeship for equity, climate, and quality jobs; a weeklong celebration focusing on High Road Construction Careers (HRCC). 
The CWDB oversees a suite of investments and policy initiatives to advance construction careers as a reliable pathway to the middle class for disadvantaged Californians. The HRCC program prioritizes partnerships that link local building and construction trades councils to workforce boards, community colleges, and community-based organizations, creating structured pathways — with a standard core curriculum and critical supportive services — to state-certified apprenticeships in a variety of crafts.
Through various state funding sources, the CWDB has invested and continues to invest millions of dollars in pre-apprenticeship partnerships across California. These investments connect programs directly to regional labor market demand through a campaign to expand the use of Community Workforce Agreements, which wrap targeted local hire provisions into public infrastructure projects, including projects critical to safeguarding the environment.
NAW is a nationwide celebration that brings together business leaders, career seekers, labor, educational institutions, and other critical partners to demonstrate their support for apprenticeship. NAW also provides apprenticeship sponsors with the opportunity to showcase their programs, facilities, and apprentices in their community. The week-long celebration highlights the benefits of apprenticeship in preparing a highly-skilled workforce to meet the talent needs of employers across diverse industries. NAW will occur November 8-14, 2020.
Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday will feature emails to registrants and workforce partners featuring the latest and greatest HRCC resources.

The celebration will conclude on Thursday with PAVING THE HIGH ROAD TO A RESILIENT ECONOMY: A Virtual Forum, targeting policymakers, government influencers, and legislative, agency and department staff.
*Zoom Link for Virtual Forum log on will be provided upon registration.*
