New York State will be investing $3 million into the State University of New York’s Apprenticeship Program. The funding will expand apprenticeship programs, coordinated by Mohawk Valley Community College and other SUNY schools, in industries like artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and information technology.

"Apprenticeship programs offer students the educational opportunities and hands-on experience they need to prepare them for the jobs of the future,” said Gov. Andrew Cuomo. "This funding will expand these critical apprenticeship programs that help students succeed in New York's rapidly growing tech industries and develop our state's booming workforce."

This is the first Consolidated Funding Application award from the $175 million Workforce Development Initiative.

This will allow SUNY campuses to apply for funding for customized training programs geared toward workforce development in conjunction with local employers that will match funds for the partnership.

The training will be provided by the following community colleges with local businesses: North Country for Agri-Mark and International Paper, Broome for the Raymond Corporation, Corning for Elmira Savings Bank, and Mohawk Valley for C & H Plastics.

"The Governor's Workforce Development initiative is already seeding strong results with more than 40 companies and 750 individuals participating in SUNY's Apprenticeship Program. Today's announced expansion will further link our students and other individuals to jobs in up-and-coming industries," said SUNY Chancellor Kirstina M. Johnson.

The SUNY Apprenticeship Program was launched in 2018, in partnership with the New York State Department of Labor. The program focuses on manufacturing and healthcare industries, enabling local employers to provide paid employment, hands-on training, and career opportunities to registered apprentices.
