For the first time in history, our signature apprenticeship programs provide the immediate opportunity for unemployed and underemployed workers to qualify for high-earning jobs without acquiring student loan debt as well as for corporations and small business owners to up-skill their employees affordably and efficiently. The Bee2Bee Network Apprenticeships program has a unique solution to adjust the income and opportunity disparities in the technology industry that are currently reflected within our communities. We are different because we are “preparing and empowering” a new class of professionals to work smarter while simultaneously “Building” a New Virtual E-commerce Infrastructure for the country which has never been done before and is long overdue. As industry pioneers, we have been actively building successful virtual technology solutions for over 10 years via our LifeStyles In 360 Platform with a focus on integrating the digital and physical worlds using the internet.
Our goals are aligned with The Department of Labor’s initiatives as Human Capital, employability and sustainability are our primary focus. The many unfilled and high-earning opportunities in the market are a reminder that we must balance technology advancements with a focus on “advancing today’s workers” by iteratively providing them with new transferable skill sets. Our decade-long pragmatic approach and sustainable ecosystem uniquely prepare our apprentices to fill today’s myriad of high-earning job vacancies in the tech industry as well as the new jobs of the future across many industries. For example, our apprentices earn a salary from day one and are provided direct access to employers and wrap-around services such as unlimited free related training, industry certifications, software, laptops, and housing assistance to ensure their completion of our program and their achievement of equitable results.
For companies that do not have the infrastructure, time, or resources to upskill efficiently, our Registered Apprenticeship Program, “offshore-onshore” model is the perfect solution. Therefore, we are leading a consortium for this initiative in collaboration with our clients and employer partners. As an industry-approved Agile Software Development Center of Excellence, our approach is simple. We are inviting technology companies, small business owners, employees, and employers of all sizes, from Wall Street to Main Street to join us as we lead by example in the prioritization of upskilling new and existing industry talent in tandem with building innovative software solutions.
Our many success stories over the past decade include a wide spectrum of apprentices from many diverse backgrounds that have graduated from our program and are now earning six-figure salaries working for leading technology companies and government agencies including starting their own businesses without any student debt. As a priority, our apprenticeship program ensures diversity, equity, and inclusion in the technology industry by hiring military veterans, people with disabilities, retirees/career changers, high school, college, and university students, through graduation including youth, foster youth, justice-involved individuals, and traditionally underserved groups such as women, people of color, LGBTQ+ and directly addressing rural communities, local area technology training, and employment needs.
“The Bee2Bee Network takes an innovative approach to address the specific needs within the most forward-looking IT (Information Technology) career paths,” Dug Jones, Program Director, Tech Quest Apprenticeship/Clark University.
The Bee2Bee, (Bee) “Apprentice Coin”- The Cryptocurrency Creating New High-Tech Apprenticeship Opportunities & Jobs
