Maryland Chamber of Commerce: Apprenticeships Fueling the Talent Pipeline

MD Chamber 50 Years

Governor Larry Hogan has named May as Apprenticeship Career Pathways Month in Maryland and just last week, Maryland introduced five new apprenticeship programs in the state. Maryland’s apprenticeship programs are creating more opportunities for workers in a variety of occupations and for youth looking to get a head start on their careers.

To aid in this effort, the Maryland Chamber Foundation is set to launch its Teacher Externship Pilot program in July 2019 with four Maryland manufacturers, Dixon Valve, Volvo Group Trucks, Stanley Black & Decker, and Toroid Corporation.
