UoGuelph launches Arts Apprenticeship Program to bridge graduation-employment gap

November 22, 2019

The University of Guelph has announced the launch of the new Guelph Arts Apprenticeship Program (GAAP) to come in January 2020. Delivered in collaboration with the City of Guelph, local businesses, and donor Alan Rottenberg, the program gives grads job readiness skills while connecting them with employers who are eager to hire young talent. To help accomplish this, Rottenberg will provide a career-building incentive for 10 grads initially by funding salaries for the first four months of their one-year apprenticeships. Through its Invest in Guelph program, the City will also identify companies willing to participate in the program. UoGuelph (ON)
