WILL Empower is now recruiting the next generation of activists and apprenticeship host sites in preparation for its Fall 2021 class of apprentices

The WILL Empower Apprenticeship Program is a paid opportunity for recent college graduates and rank-and-file activists to explore what it’s like to work for the labor and workers’ justice movement, and to gain the skills and knowledge needed to begin making a difference.  The Apprenticeship Program allows movement organizations to invest in the next generation of a diverse leadership group and bring in fresh energy and talent to their organization.

Prospective apprentices can find out more about the program here and apply here. Movement organizations considering hosting an apprentice can find out more here and fill out an application here. All applications are due by May 1, 2021.

WILL Empower apprentices will begin in the Fall 2021 and will continue for 3-12 months. Past apprentices have worked at local, national, and international union and worker organizations in roles focusing on organizing, research, communications, politics, mobilization, and policy. Each apprentice will have two mentors and ongoing support and connection with members of the WILL Empower network. Pay starts at $17 an hour.
