Accelerating Public Sector Apprenticeships


Description: Public-sector apprenticeships are a powerful and underused tool for workforce and economic development. When state and local governments create apprenticeship programs for jobs where hiring is a challenge, those roles benefit from an infusion of talent. At the same time, apprentices benefit by earning wages, learning new skills, and building valuable work experience.


Join the Urban Institute and The Council of State Governments (CSG) to learn about the advantages of public-sector apprenticeships, how states can apply to receive support to launch or expand such apprenticeships, and the benefits of participating in the apprenticeship consortium. The event will feature both Urban and CSG experts and youth apprentices employed in the public sector.
