The California Department of Industrial Relations announced today that it has launched a landscape apprenticeship program in conjunction with the Alameda Point Collaborative and San Leandro Adult School. The purpose is to provide career opportunities in landscaping for low-income residents of the collaborative.

According to a press release from the department, the program will consist of over 288 hours of classroom instruction, and 2,000 hours of on-the-job training over a two year period. Apprentices will be guaranteed a paid, part-time, apprenticeship and will receive periodic salary increases over the two years.

“The ability to provide employment opportunities to those who may otherwise be at a disadvantage in this job market is a crucial function of apprenticeship, and this is a partnership we are extremely excited about,” said DAS Director Diane Ravnik. “The Collaborative and San Leandro Adult School are two organizations that we are very proud to stand with today and we hope this partnership will be a model to other groups going forward.”

“This is a significant day for us here at the collaborative,” said Andrea Schorr, Director of Social Enterprise at the Alameda Point Collaborative. “This apprenticeship program will allow more of our residents to have opportunities for work that they may not have otherwise.”

The Alameda Point Collaborative is the largest provider of low-income housing in the East Bay, and is situated on the former Naval Air Station Alameda.
