Project Description: We began this project to establish system-wide infrastructure for a user-focused navigable apprenticeship system serving our region’s businesses and students. The LAUNCH Apprenticeship Network integrates the apprenticeship model into the workforce and education systems of the region’s community colleges, K-12 districts, and Workforce Development Boards. By streamlining resources, LAUNCH acts as an intermediary and education provider for businesses and students using the apprenticeship model.
