More and more businesses, workforce development organizations, and educational institutions across the country are turning to apprenticeship as a proven model for work-based learning. This customized and flexible workforce solution trains workers to the exact skill needs of business – and provides wages during training so that workers can “earn while they learn.”
The U.S. Department of Labor (US DOL) is making a historic investment in apprenticeship. After announcing Accelerator Grants to 52 states and territories in early June, US DOL just recently announced a new $50 million ApprenticeshipUSA State Expansion grant competition.
Maher & Maher has partnered with US DOL to launch a number of successful apprenticeship initiatives over the last decade in order to accelerate understanding and adoption of apprenticeship, such as:
Maher & Maher is also helping states to better use apprenticeship as a talent development strategy to drive their regional economies and leverage the increased emphasis on apprenticeship under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.

Maher & Maher has a long history working with states, regions, and local workforce areas to develop employer- driven talent solutions that connect industries seeking talent with the skilled workforce they need. To learn more about our apprenticeship work, click here.
