Former WILL Empower apprentices

Posted in News

The WILL Empower Apprenticeship Program is a multipronged initiative designed to identify, nurture, and train a new generation of women’s labor leadership. The WILL Empower apprentices may work in a variety of capacities, including organizing, research, communications, politics, mobilization, and policy. Apprentices benefit from a formal mentorship program, with mentors both within and outside of the host organization, and participate in a WILL Empower training and gathering at the beginning of their apprenticeship.

The apprenticeships run for 3-12 months. Each apprentice has two mentors and ongoing support and connection with members of the WILL Empower network. Pay starts at $18 an hour. Following successful completion of the program, WILL Empower staff work with program graduates on job identification and recommendation.

WILL Empower is currently recruiting for our 2022 class of apprentices and for host sites. Find out more about being an apprentice on our information sheet and see the list of program qualifications here. Host sites can find out more information here.
