Department of Workforce Development Celebrates National Registered Apprenticeship Week

 National Registered Apprenticeship Week is November 13-17, and to mark the occasion the city’s Department of Workforce Development, housed at the Missouri Job Center, is hosting a mayoral proclamation and update on the Apprenticeship Building America grant. The event is Monday, November 13 at 2 p.m. at the Missouri Job Center, 2900 E. Sunshine in Springfield.

 “We are excited to kick off the week by highlighting some of the early success we’ve seen so far with the Apprenticeship Building America grant,” said Haley Jones-Sides, Grant Coordinator for the Department of Workforce Development. “We began enrolling participants in April and have so far exceeded our enrollment goal for both registered apprenticeships and pre-apprenticeships,” Jones-Sides said.

 The $3 million Apprenticeship Building America grant was award to the city’s Department of Workforce Development in July 2022 with a goal of 400 registered apprenticeships completed during the four year tenure of the grant. The 10-county service area includes Barry, Christian, Dade, Dallas, Greene, Lawrence, Polk, Stone, Taney and Webster . The grant runs through June 2026.
