The Mississippi Apprenticeship Program (MAP) is a bold new initiative to expand Registered Apprenticeship programs and transform workforce development in this state. Developed through the unprecedented collaboration between 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.
