RPAC's Mission

The membership of the collaborative has a mission to build a regional pre-apprenticeship system which provides a direct and sustainable pathway to concrete, high-paying careers (with benefits) for local, low-income residents – especially African-Americans, females and people of color. The collaborative is committed to funding and supporting a region-wide approach to outreach, recruitment, education and training resulting in the systematic entry of local, highly qualified African Americans, women, people of color and underserved residents into construction apprenticeships and to ensure these apprentices succeed and journey out.
