National Apprenticeship Week
November 11, 2019 - November 18, 2019
We’re now in the full swing of fall which means our country’s celebration of apprenticeships is quickly approaching! During the week of November 11 – 18, thousands of events will be held across the entire country with total attendance estimated to surpass 100,000.
National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) is the nationwide celebration established by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) in 2014 to celebrate the tremendous impact that apprenticeships have in shaping America’s workforce and the economy of the future.
Over the course of NAW, leaders in business, labor, education, and other invaluable partners the opportunity to showcase the programs, facilities, and apprentices in their community. From apprenticeship graduations, business open houses, high school career fairs, skills competitions and industry roundtables to submitting a proclamation supporting NAW and apprenticeships – there are several ways to participate. Coming off an amazing 2018 NAW, the biggest yet, 2019’s celebration promises to exceed all expectations!
