Apprenticeship Readiness Training in Detroit
with Robert Davis, Senior Advisor, MDOT - Metro Detroit
The Access for All program is a construction trade apprenticeship readiness training for Detroit residents. The 9-week "career pathway" strategy prepares Detroiters for successful entry into construction apprenticeships and/or employment in the skilled trades. Acceptance into to an apprenticeship is like being accepted into college-but even better. You get to learn the trade and work and make money at the same time; without the tuition.
