What’s Good For Business:

We understand that companies want marketing opportunities. We are the vehicle to market their programs and services. We provide the best way to reward our businesses for helping us and their employees can be proud of them for getting involved with us. We see our partnerships as growing commitments on our part to involve the company more for their part. We appreciate their employees giving our apprentices first-hand experience about what their organization does.

We Seek Corporate Sponsors:

Our cause it worth the investment. The revenue opportunities in a partnership with National Apprentice Day include:

  • Cause marketing – A marketing program from our corporate sponsor that our organization is the highlight of and beneficiary of. We have the ability to gain awareness and percentage of sales. The corporate sponsor, in turn, has the ability to attract new customers who want to support our cause.
  • The Gift of Giving – Whether it’s one day a year or one day a week, we want our corporate sponsors to be involved in the programs we offer. They can provide our apprentices with the needed expertise and guidance to further our mission.
  • Workplace Giving – With payroll giving programs, we have the opportunity to present our mission face to face with every person in a company.
  • Customer Giving – Businesses with retail locations have the ability to present new opportunities to get their customers involved in giving to our organization at their cash registers. Our program can be a big win for a company, since they look like a great corporate citizen, while not needing to invest their own funds. All donations come from customers.
  • Volunteerism – An alliance with a company means they can team up with us and participate to train youth apprentices.
