On Thursday, Gov. Ron DeSantis came to Riverview to help launch a new apprenticeship program.

Through programs like these, we are helping pave the way for Floridians to prepare themselves and our workforce for the jobs of the future.”

“Apprenticeship programs are essential to ensuring Florida has the best, most qualified workforce and that our students have a wide variety of employment options in our state,” said Corcoran. “As a result of apprenticeship programs like these, Florida is on track to be first in the nation for workforce education by 2030. I want to thank Governor Ron DeSantis and Charter for making the commitment of investing in our students and their futures.”
