Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce Apprenticeship Program

Thank you for your interest in the Chamber of Commerce Apprenticeship Program.  This initiative, funded with generous support from the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (DCEO), provides one year apprenticeship opportunities to City Colleges of Chicago students at small and mid-sized Chicagoland companies.

Participating companies gain access to local, diverse, and qualified talent who are more likely to remain loyal to their place of employment and receive 50% reimbursement for the cost of apprentices’ salaries.  Students receive support services from our partners at One Million Degrees and tuition assistance, which helps to create a pathway to full-time employment.

This is part of the Chamber’s ongoing commitment to continually provide support, investments, and resources to meet the workforce needs of today and tomorrow.

Limited spots are available to participate in Cohort 3 of this program, which will run January – December 2022.  If you are interested in learning more or participating, please submit the form below.
