Opportunity America, (of which CIRT is a member), is working on a new project with the Urban Institute and a team of consultants whose business is to help companies stand up youth apprenticeship programs. Technical assistance of the kind these consultants provide is usually a fairly pricey option for an employer. But thanks to a generous grant from the US Department of Labor, these consultants are in a position to provide their services for free. The question is: are any companies interested in the kind of assistance these consultants can provide? If so, they will work with CIRT to inform our members about what services are available and recruit them for regional meetings with the consultants to explore it further.
