Charlotte, Workforce Development, And Apprenticeship
In previous centuries, people took apprenticeships to learn a trade. Today, apprenticeships are returning as a way to prepare the next generation of workers.

In this region, ten community colleges are banding together to be part of this and we’ll hear what they’ve accomplished and what remains to be done.
