Pre-Apprenticeship Programs: Results from a National Survey

The Aspen Institute's Workforce Strategies Initiative recently conducted a nationwide census project aimed at pre-apprenticeship programs in the construction trades. Funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the survey explored the number, geographic location, and scope of construction pre-apprenticeship programs. The survey generated responses from 260 pre-apprenticeship program leaders from across the United States. The research paper describing the results of the survey covers topics such as program size, organizational types and affiliations, the range of services provided, the current challenges programs face and the demographic groups the programs serve. To build on this work, WSI has received a grant from the Annie E. Casey Foundation to interview a select group of leaders from some of the nation's most successful pre-apprenticeship programs. The results of these interviews will provide a more in-depth analysis of successful program models and promising practices in pre-apprenticeship programs. In conjunction with the results from the survey, the interview results ultimately will provide decision-makers and stakeholders with a picture of several different approaches to pre-apprenticeship programs and strategies across the U.S. To learn more about WSI's research on construction pre-apprenticeship programs, download the report.
