Workforce History:

Northrop Grumman is a leading global security company providing innovative systems, products and solutions to government and commercial customers worldwide, offering a portfolio of capabilities and technologies for applications from undersea to outer space and into cyberspace.

SBWIB Partnership:

Pioneer Partner to the new SBWIB Aero-Flex Pre-Apprenticeship (AFPA) Engineering Program, Northrop Grumman became the first company to graduate 19 South Bay area high school seniors from the program. The students were selected based on their academic achievements, high school administration recommendations and expressed interest in Engineering related careers. Their learning included work readiness skills through the SBWIB Blueprint for Success curriculum and industry specific occupational skills training and work based learning.

Outcome and Benefits:

Seniors Verania Ceja Franco from Hawthorne High, and Matthew Paysee from El Segundo High, are two of the AFPA graduates that earned multiple industry recognized certificates including the capstone Certificate of Completion signed by eight apprenticeship committee employers.
