Be Pro, Be Proud is an initiative led by the Associated Industries of Arkansas. It is designed to take a new generation of professionals to Arkansas’s skilled workforce.
The initiative says tens of thousands of manufacturing jobs are unskilled in Arkansas. It encourages businesses to open their doors to students at every level, connect with two-year colleges and trade schools, and engage with community leaders to demonstrate the opportunities for skilled workers.
