About us

PIA collaborates with employers and apprenticeship intermediaries to design inclusive apprenticeship programs that meet employer talent needs and enable people with disabilities to gain credentials and skills to succeed in growing industries.

How we get there


We collaborate with employers, apprenticeship intermediaries, and people with disabilities to make apprenticeship programs more inclusive.

Create Opportunities

We support apprenticeship intermediaries in recruiting people with disabilities and employers who are interested in offering inclusive apprenticeships.

Focus on Policy

We help grow the programs we support, analyzing and developing policies to ensure successful programs can be scaled nationwide.

Provide Resources

We work with apprenticeship intermediaries and employers to identify and create the resources they need to structure and sustain inclusive apprenticeship programs.
