Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship celebrates National Apprenticeship Week, November 15th to 21st.

The 7th annual National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) will take place November 15 - 21, 2021. NAW is a nationwide celebration where industry, labor, equity, workforce, education, and government leaders host events to showcase the successes and value of Registered Apprenticeship for re-building our economy, advancing racial and gender equity, and supporting underserved communities. NAW is an opportunity to highlight how Registered Apprenticeship, a proven and industry-driven training model, provides a critical talent pipeline that can help to address some of our nation’s pressing workforce challenges such as responding to critical supply chain demands and supporting a clean energy workforce, modernizing our cybersecurity response, addressing public health issues, and rebuilding our country’s infrastructure.

WHEREAS, the United States currently faces a skills gap in the number of qualified workers to supply the needs across the dairy farming industry; and

WHEREAS, apprenticeship programs are uniquely capable of providing the academic and work-based learning required to develop in-demand skills in conjunction with employment; and

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Joseph Tomandl lll, Executive Director of Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship, call upon all of our agriculture & industry partners to recognize the value of apprenticeships, and to promote industry awareness and expansion during the seventh anniversary of:
