Say Yes Buffalo’s growing apprenticeship program, CareerWise Greater Buffalo, is set to receive a $1M grant in American Rescue Plan funding administered by the City of Buffalo. These funds will be invested directly in growing the program which offers an “earn-while-you-learn” pathway to high school seniors to enter the workforce on a path to family-sustaining wages.

“This is an incredible investment in the young people in our community,” Say Yes Buffalo CEO David Rust said about the ARP grant from the city. “An investment like this pays for itself with the opportunity for a good-paying job.” Read more in the Buffalo News article below, published on January 29, 2024.
