Request for Proposals! Capital Area Apprenticeship Prep (CAAP)

CAWD’s new CAAP program connects young adults aged 16-24 to meaningful credentials and successful careers. We are looking for training providers that can deliver pre-apprenticeship training as well as connect qualified participants to Registered Apprenticeships. The current focus is on pre-apprenticeships in information technology, but we will accept proposals in other sectors including construction/skilled trades, healthcare, and advanced manufacturing.

The Apprenticeship Prep Program prepares young people with education, career readiness skills, and a pre-apprenticeship opportunity. At the end of the program, they are prepared for an apprenticeship, employment, or continued education. Participants will apply for the program that matches their career interests and go through the program as a cohort of 10-15 people.

The deadline to submit completed proposals is 5:15 pm on February 11th, 2022.
