The West Philadelphia Skills Initiative (WPSI) will be launching recruitment later this month for the Shipyard Apprentice Program in partnership with Philly Shipyard, Inc. Would it be possible to include this in the newsletter? The starting wage has been increased to $22/hour.

If accepted, program is March 27 – April 14, and the apprenticeship starts May 1. Registration is open for virtual information sessions:
