Apprentice Power - Advancing Community Reinvestment

Apprentice Power is the human capital and workforce development component of Helping Communities Work, a public private partnership. Apprentice Power strategies promote financial education and create job opportunities for low-and-moderate-income individuals.

Helping Communities Work helps financial institutions to achieve CRA modernization and compliance through the leveraging of government funding, impact investing and philanthropy. 

 The Manpower Group family of brands, working in collaboration with staffing industry strategic partners, comprehensively addresses the complex workforce challenges that confront all high-growth industries. Services range from contingent and permanent staffing to talent management, outsourcing and talent development. ManpowerGroup delivers the solutions that drive business forward.


Apprentice Power also supports CRA modernization and compliance through a strategic partnership with the Robert C. Byrd Institute at Marshall University and other American Apprenticeship grantees. 

The partnership makes apprenticeship grants available to employers through their banking relationships and industry association memberships. Artificial intelligence is central to the enterprise.  

Apprenticeship grants can also serve as catalytic capital for the creation of place-based impact investing strategies through Helping Communities Work.

Apprentice Power breaks down the silos that challenge inclusive economic growth through an industry association strategy designed 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. 

Human capital is a key driver of a successful economy, as routine tasks are automated and the premium paid to creativity rises accordingly".
