2022 was a very busy year for the Workforce Investment Network (WIN). WIN is a High Roads Training Partnership (HRTP) between Golden Gate Transit and the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1575. In 2022 they teamed up with Santa Rosa Junior College/Adult Education and California Transit Works to create a Bus Operator Pre-Apprenticeship Program to help find and train future bus operators.
Together, with the College of Marin, they have created a Bus Operator Apprenticeship Program where the apprentices earn college credit for participating in the apprenticeship. WIN has participated in many presentations to educate others on what they have learned during their process in creating these programs. WIN also has a fully functioning bus operator peer mentoring program that is highly engaged and were very involved in the creation of the curriculum for the Pre-Apprenticeship practicum classes.
WIN is looking forward to 2023.
