The Children and Family Justice Center (CFJC), now more than 80 percent complete, leads in total apprenticeship hours on King County projects and employs a diverse workforce earning family-wage jobs. As of December 2018, apprentices have performed 93,205 labor hours on the project. This project requires the use of state registered apprentices for 15 percent of all labor hours worked, and 17 percent participation from certified Small Contractors and Suppliers (SCS). As of May, the CFJC project boasts a 25 percent apprenticeship rate and is meeting the 17 percent required rate for SCS businesses.

”King County’s long-standing apprenticeship program has had a profound impact on providing family wage jobs to many of King County’s residents,” said Daniel Peterson, the Business Development Contract Compliance (BDCC) team’s Apprenticeship Coordinator.
