Welcome to another edition of #Snapshot, where we bring you a glimpse of what’s going on at Summer Search.
Check out Sylvia Watts McKinney, our Executive Director of Summer Search Philadelphia, serving as the moderator for a Women in Apprenticeships event during National Apprenticeship Week!
As we recently shared, National Apprenticeship Week (Nov. 14-18, 2022) is a nationwide celebration to showcase the successes and value of Apprenticeship Programs for rebuilding our economy, advancing racial and gender equity, and supporting underserved communities.
This event, hosted by Aon and The Philadelphia Apprentice Network, celebrated stories of women in apprentices while highlighting opportunities to expand pathways for women to enter and lead in a range of fields in which women have traditionally been underrepresented.
Sylvia was also featured in Aon's Apprentice Network video, where leaders from around the country shared about the power and impact of Apprenticeship programs on young people in their communities.
Once again, we'd like to thank Aon for their generous support and partnership with Summer Search over the years, and we're excited to see how our Summer Search students and alumni are doing as current participants in Aon's Apprenticeship Program!
Thank you Sylvia for always being a champion and evangelist for Summer Search and our young people!
