On February 11, 2012

Prince George's County Council Member Karen R. Toles (D) – District 7, is collaborating with United Communities Against Poverty, Inc. (UCAP), the official Community Action Agency for Prince George's County and the leading advocate for communities of people facing deficiencies in education, affordable housing, economic stability and access to quality healthcare to help prepare women in the County workforce for non-traditional jobs and careers.

Council Member Toles and UCAP, as part of the nonprofit's Green Industry JobsProgram, will host the Women in Apprenticeships and Non-traditional Occupations Roundtable Strategic Planning Session at UCAP, 1400 Doewood Lane, in Capitol Heights, MD, on Thursday, February 9, 2012, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

"Putting County residents back to work is a top priority. Working with UCAP, we are focusing this initiative on women, a critical segment of our County workforce. Apprenticeships and non-traditional opportunities for working women in the County offer as a successful path to self-sufficiency and economic stability," comments Council Member Toles.

Roundtable discussions will include how to develop an apprenticeship program; growing careers and business opportunities in the green industry; and how businesses should comply with CB-16-2011, the County's new Project Labor Agreement law, legislation put forth by Council Member Toles and approved by the County Council, promoting the hiring of County workers and encouraging trades.
