WILL Empower is thrilled to welcome our fourth class of apprentices!  

This Fall, ten activists will join organizations across the country advocating for worker justice as part of the WILL Empower Apprenticeship Program. The program serves as an on-ramp for the next generation of activists to gain experience and build skills in the labor and worker rights movement.

Apprentices work full-time for three to twelve months at host sites across the United States. Apprentices will work in research, organizing, communications, policy, and advocacy for unions, labor advocacy groups, worker centers, and international organizations. Each apprentice brings a unique background and set of experiences to the apprenticeship program and new energy and fresh ideas to the movement for worker justice. 

Meet our new apprentices here.

WILL Empower is a joint program of the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor and the Center for Innovation in Worker Organization at Rutgers University.
