How YUPRO Built a Community and Actively Engaged Their Apprentices

“Our partnership with Symba is more than a technology investment, but instead a holistic solution to our apprenticeship learning community that provides for talent networking, upskilling, and program retention.  And at YUPRO, we support Symba as a women & minority owned business in commitment to our social impact to shape a more equitable and inclusive workforce.” - Michelle Sims, CEO at YUPRO

Symba & YUPRO Partnership Highlights

This case study features how YUPRO's team built a community and actively engaged over 300 apprentices that participated in YUPRO’s pilot OnRamps@Work Apprenticeship program. Here are some other highlights:

  • YUPRO engaged their apprentices through readings, discussion topics, videos, and shared resources within Symba.
  • Through this program, YUPRO partnered with 34 industry-leading employers to reconnect young adults impacted by the pandemic and bring them back to the economic mainstream. 
  • Symba’s Discussion Board feature was instrumental in enabling YUPRO’s apprentices and staff to interact with each other in one space.


By partnering up with Symba, YUPRO was able to provide a valuable experience for all participants in their apprenticeship program - program managers and apprentices.
