The Mississippi Apprenticeship Program (MAP) supports economic growth and community development by connecting business and industry with the resources necessary to recruit and retain highly skilled employees through dynamic Registered Apprenticeship programs.  The Mississippi Apprenticeship Program works with community college and industry partners across the state to strengthen the workforce and provide more opportunities for Mississippians to participate in apprenticeship programs. These programs represent a variety of fields such as manufacturing, transportation and logistics, energy and utilities, banking and finance, and more, that enable our state’s residents to earn a living wage while learning a new skill that could lead to a meaningful career. Developed through the unprecedented collaboration among the Mississippi Department of Employment Security (MDES), the Mississippi Community College Board (MCCB), and the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA), MAP is positioning Registered Apprenticeship as a viable pathway that aligns across our workforce and educational systems, strengthens economic competitiveness for our businesses, and makes good-paying jobs more accessible for our citizens.
