This episode looks at successful apprentice and training-based programs preparing under-educated and unemployed people for available jobs by teaching valuable skills. In addition to Alexandria Seaport Foundation's boatbuilding apprentice program, Dropping Back In features Cafe Hope, a culinary apprentice program in New Orleans. Also featured is The Makers Coalition of Minneapolis, a training program in sewing manufacturing that began when a local company discovered a successful niche in making domestically manufactured high-end leather goods, but couldn't find enough skilled workers.
