Extending opportunity & promoting equity through apprenticeship

Apprenticeships build skills, extend opportunity, and confront the coming wave of retirements. The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority, with Amalgamated Transit Union, Local 265, created the Joint Workforce Investment to address just this within their transit workforce. The project has grown and created pathways for non-traditional workers, such as people of color and women, through several apprenticeship programs that are successfully building a transit workforce for the future that reflects the diverse community of Silicon Valley.
