Apprentice Power - Advancing Innovation in Banking Services

Apprentice Power collaborates with banks and other financial institutions to create and align internal staffing, client development and impact investing strategies and solutions. The process also assists in satisfying the compliance requirements of the Community Reinvestment Act of 1977 (CRA).

Apprentice Power partners include the ManpowerGroup family of brands and Helping Communities Work, a public private partnership formed to advance community development through innovations in funding and investment leveraging.

Apprentice Power strives to align and achieve diverse yet interrelated socioeconomic goals and objectives. We focus on the creation of a more holistic and productive continuum of education, human capital, workforce, community and economic development.  

Apprentice Power has also formed strategic alliances with the Robert C. Byrd Institute for Advanced Flexible Manufacturing at Marshall University, Able-Disabled Advocacy and other American Apprenticeship grantees. 

The alliances provide apprenticeship training grants and related staffing innovations to employers, directly and through their banking and industry association relationships. 

The grants promote financial literacy and economic education. They can also serve as catalytic capital for the creation and execution of place-based impact investing strategies.

Apprentice Power serves all workforce populations with a concentration on low-and moderate-income individuals and communities. The process assists financial institutions in meeting their CRA obligations. 

Apprentice Power advances the socioeconomic capacities and capabilities of the banking, financial and staffing services industries by breaking down the silos that challenge workforce and workplace diversity and inclusive economic growth. 

Apprentice Power collaborates with thought leaders across all industries to help increase and diversify the human capital endowment of the United States. 


"A nation’s human capital endowment embodies the knowledge and skills residing in individuals, which empowers them to create economic value. 

Human capital must be invested in and leveraged efficiently in order for it to generate returns for the individuals involved and for the economy as a whole,"
