Over 45 attendees and 11 businesses converged on YV-Tech in Yakima in late August’s Roundtable.
The event featured Employment Security Department’s Commissioner Suzi Levine, Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee’s (AJAC) Bri Durham, and L&I’s WA Apprenticeship’s Rachel McAloon.
The panel provided information on apprenticeships and its future in Yakima and WA State as a pipeline to increasing the work force and filling the skills-gap.
There are free resources and local businesses already hosting an apprentice that can answer questions and provide further information.
