Women Innovating Labor Leadership – WILL Empower Apprenticeship Program

WILL Empower invites applications to its selective Apprenticeship Program, a new program designed to identify and recruit activists to the economic justice movement. The paid apprentices work for 3-12 months with unions and worker organizations across the nation. WILL Empower (Women Innovating Labor Leadership) is a multipronged initiative designed to identify, nurture, and train a new generation of women’s labor leadership. The WILL Empower apprentices may work in a variety of capacities, including organizing, research, communications, politics, mobilization, and policy. Apprentices benefit from a formal mentorship program, with mentors both within and outside of the host organization, and participate in a WILL Empower training and gathering in Washington, DC.

The next group of apprentices will begin work in the fall of 2019. Apprentices earn an average of $15 an hour, or the salaried equivalent. The program is a full-time job training experience. Following successful completion of the program, WILL Empower staff work with program graduates on job identification and recommendation. Applications are due April 15, 2019.
