Apprenticeship Expansion: The Apprenticeship Expansion Program Design is centered on supporting both businesses and individuals. Expanding apprenticeships helps businesses with their current and future workforce needs as well as individuals with a career pathway, which includes work-based learning. This section outlines key elements to the program design. Apprenticeships are an efficient and cost-effective way for employers to keep staffing at the best level to meet goals. Apprentices can begin a solid career and grow their skills without taking on large amounts of college debt. Apprenticeships have been traditionally associated with construction and the trades, apprenticeship programs are now within a variety of industries, including some “non- traditional” apprenticeship industries such as healthcare, IT, advanced manufacturing, banking, insurance, and transportation, distribution, and logistics (TDL).

Milestone Program: This is a statewide program under the direction of the Department of Human Services - Division of Rehabilitation Services (DHS DRS) Vocational Rehabilitation Program.

Competitive employment is integrated employment within the community which pays the Customer (employee) at least minimum wage or a wage commensurate to the prevailing wage and applicable fringe benefits. AOGRC uses job matching techniques to assists individuals in identifying specific jobs or potential employers that are available and accessible in the community.
