Sam Staten Sr. Prep-Apprenticeship Program (SSSPAP)

The Samuel Staten Sr. Pre-Apprenticeship Program (SSSPAP) aims to increase diversity in Philadelphia’s construction trade by moving under-represented individuals into construction trade apprenticeships in Philadelphia. SSSPAP prepares participants for apprenticeships by providing academic and employability skills, along with supportive services such as life skills training and financial literacy. The program aims to increase diversity in the Philadelphia Building Trade unions and help participants secure employment with competitive salaries, benefits, and career potential. SSSPAP has garnered support from construction trade unions and also assists participants in finding employment opportunities that improve their earning capacity.
