The Department of Labor has selected 207 officials and organizations to serve as the initial cohort of Apprenticeship Ambassadors, who will share their experiences and champion apprenticeship opportunities. The initiative brings together industry, labor, education, equity and workforce leaders to partner with the Office of Apprenticeship. Ambassadors communicate the value of Registered Apprenticeships as a workforce strategy in high-demand industries and to develop and expand opportunities for people who have been underserved historically.

"With investment in training, Registered Apprenticeships provide relevant and rigorous curriculum demands that ensure a skilled workforce capable of meeting any job requirement."
