Two SWACCC members, National Park College and South Arkansas Community College, were among the beneficiaries of a Department of Labor Employment and Training Assistance American Apprenticeship Pathways Initiative (AAPI) Grant.
This DOL grant is administered by the Arkansas Department of Workforce Services. Through this initiative, ADWS will connect Arkansans over the next five years to high-quality apprenticeships that will provide participants with the knowledge and skills they need to attain good-paying jobs that are available now. Participants will also earn college credit upon completion of an apprenticeship program. These earn-while-you-learn training opportunities will be targeted toward dislocated, underemployed, unemployed and underrepresented individuals.
