Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorships for the Finger Lakes Youth Apprenticeship Program include:

Participation sponsorship

Ready to start building your next-generation workforce? We are continuously looking for employers who will offer job shadows and paid co- ops to our participating students. With a critical shortage of skilled labor in our area, you can proactively recruit upcoming talent by participating in the FLYAP and sponsoring students to be your future employees and journey-workers. If you are interested in becoming a participation sponsor, please visit our For Employers page and fill out the application form.

Financial Sponsorship

In order to expand and improve the FLYAP, we need funding partners who are willing to invest in our future workforce. We are extremely honored and proud to partner with our two founding sponsors, The Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation and Rochester Gas & Electric, on this innovative program. These formidable organizations have provided vital funding to promote, market, and reward students through the journey of the program. If you are interested in becoming a financial sponsor, please visit our Contact page and fill out the form.


To provide an exceptional experience for our students and partners, we are engaging with organizations whose resources and expertise complement the offerings of Monroe Community College and The Rochester Technology and Manufacturing Association. The organizations that we are currently working with are BOCES, Rochester City School District, Genesee Community College, Finger lakes Community College, webSURGE Digital Marketing, Entercom, MakeWay, FAME, GCREDC, and Causewave Community Partners.
