Pre-Apprenticeship Program’s Receive Funding

A program targeted to serve young people out-of-school and living in poverty, ages 18-24 has been awarded funding to six training providers as part of the nation’s first state-sponsored Pre-Apprenticeship Program. The providers will create a pathway to apprenticeship for at-risk young women and men, providing the skills needed to enter into full apprenticeship. $1.1 million is funding the pre-apprenticeship grant recipients and $1.5 million in Federal funding will increase business outreach to establish new registered apprenticeship programs. Governor Cuomo said, “These investments will connect businesses with skilled workers, provide life-changing opportunities to young people across the state, and help lay the foundation for a stronger, fairer New York for all.” Putnam, Northern Westchester Counties, and the Hudson Valley have all received funding to expose pre-apprentices in construction and manufacturing. Congresswoman Nita M. Lowey said, “I fought hard to secure $90 million for the ApprenticeshipUSA program, and I’m pleased the Governor is utilizing smart federal investments to equip young people with skills that will lead to good jobs and more secure futures.”
