Bay Area College Apprenticeship Connection

This is a community of practice for folks in the Bay Area Community Colleges who are working on Apprenticeship. We gather monthly to share best practices, upcoming funding and collaboration opportunities and to generally collaborate towards expanding apprenticeship in all sectors.

We typically meet bi-monthly on the 2nd Wednesday at 10am PST. Alternate months are Office Hours to answer questions and provide technical assistance.
