California Apprenticeship Initiative

The California Apprenticeship Initiative (CAI) is a grant opportunity offered by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office to support the creation of new apprenticeships and pre-apprenticeship training programs.

The Foundation provides technical assistance to over 100 CAI funded projects and 20 sectors through capacity building  in order to increase student and employer engagement and foster a shared community of practice for all interest in the planning and implementation of apprenticeship programming.
