Online components of the campaign include three Facebook posts, targeted display ads on WLNS.com and the MMC Resource Microsite. In total, each company will receive 50,000 impressions from online media.

American Apprenticeship Initiative
Posted January 23, 2015

The Department of Labor is making $100 million in existing H-1B funds available for American Apprenticeship Grants to reward partnerships that help more workers participate in apprenticeships. This competition will help more Americans access this proven path to employment and the middle class: 87 percent of apprentices are employed after completing their programs and the average starting wage for apprenticeship graduates is over $50,000.

CAMC is meeting with partners in January and February to explore the possibility of applying for funds under this grant.
