What is the Apprenticeship Ambassador Initiative?

As champions for Registered Apprenticeship, Apprenticeship Ambassadors will partner with DOL to:

  • Promote and expand awareness of the benefits of Registered Apprenticeship in the U.S. for industry, employers, career seekers, educators, and communities as a whole.
  • Identify and scale innovative practices and partnerships to modernize, strengthen, and accelerate the adoption of Registered Apprenticeships.
  • Increase access and support for underrepresented and underserved populations in Registered Apprenticeship including women, youth, people of color, rural communities, justice-involved individuals, and people with disabilities.
  • Communicate the business case for Registered Apprenticeship as a mainstream workforce strategy for high-demand industries and create opportunities for good jobs for all Americans across the economy.

 

What Role Do We Play As an Ambassador?

Apprenticeship Ambassadors will support the Department of Labors' work of modernizing Registered Apprenticeship by increasing diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in Registered Apprenticeship Programs. Ambassadors will also work to engage the industry in new and emerging sectors; as well as expand pre-apprenticeship, youth apprenticeship, and degree apprenticeships.

Examples of organizations that would be eligible include Registered Apprenticeship sponsors, Related Technical Instruction providers, intermediaries, sponsors of pre-apprenticeship programs that lead to RAPs, and equity partners who have seen the value and benefits of Registered Apprenticeship and want to partner with DOL to help promote, expand, diversify, and modernize it.
