Talent is equally distributed, opportunity is not. Launched on April 29th, 2021, the Northern California Apprentice Network will bring together leadership from major employers, the public sector, community colleges, non-profit training providers, apprenticeship intermediaries, and funders to scale up apprenticeship programs as a vehicle to achieve an equitable economic recovery.
The Northern California Apprentice Network is employer-driven and will provide an open forum for all Northern California employers to learn from each other about the benefits and best practices of quality apprenticeship programming. The Network will strive to build awareness and excitement around apprenticeship programs, then work with companies to build similar programs to fit their needs. Apprenticeships provide a viable talent solution for business while opening the door to well-paid roles for diverse and underrepresented talent across the region.
Vision: Creating new pathways to high demand roles through apprenticeships
Mission: The Northern California Apprentice Network (NCAN) will create, coordinate, and expand apprenticeship programs in new industries across the Northern California region to better prepare the workforce of tomorrow.
