Advancing Apprenticeships with Women of Color

This project will involve the collection of narrative (qualitative) data on female apprenticeship experiences between the ages of 18-24 who are participating in a registered apprenticeship program at Pickens Technical College in Aurora, CO. Data will be analyzed in order to extrapolate themes from the experiences of the apprentices and categorize those themes. This data and the subsequent narratives will assist in addressing barriers of participation and strategies to increase recruitment of female learners of color.
