Central Coast Voices: SLO County leading the way for apprenticeship programs in CA

In 2014 the San Luis Obispo County Office of Education formed SLO Partners to address college and career readiness among the county’s student population. Since then, SLO Partners has produced five apprenticeship programs over the last three years, and together these have produced over 300 graduates and employees for around 25 local companies. Today, San Luis Obispo County is among  the top places in California for apprenticeship programs.

Join Fred Munroe as he speaks with guests SLO Partners' program director and operations director—Paula Mathias Fryer and Luke Wallace—as they discuss how the organization is helping SLO County lead the way for apprenticeship programs in California through their commitment to collaborating with local businesses and education for pathways to opportunity and skilled local talent.
