The workforce component of the Stockton Mobility Collective will focus on creating a pipeline for jobs in shared mobility operations and their components such as Electric Vehicle Service Equipment (EVSE) installation, electric vehicle (EV) maintenance and equipment repair, and management and operations of EVs and e-bikesharing fleet networks. The electric shared mobility apprenticeship program will recruit 10 to 20 candidates, primarily but not limited to ages 18 to 24, for an 18-month paid program where they will learn technical, operational and managerial components of electric shared mobility.
|Mobility Development Partners will serve as the workforce project lead and oversee the launch and operations of the project. MDP supports the launch and growth of community-controlled mobility programs with work centered on the development, deployment, and operation of electric carshare, bikeshare, and volunteer transportation networks across the United States. These networks are often structured through public or local nonprofit ownership that allows MDP to focus on broadening service to communities that would otherwise go unserved.|
|Fresno Metro Black Chamber Foundation supports the Fresno Metro Black Chamber of Commerce’s charitable activities, increasing philanthropy in the region for the African American community and facilitating more services to help emerging businesses succeed. And since 2018, the FMBCF has worked with the city of Fresno on a California Climate Investments-funded clean Shared Mobility Network. The network operates a fleet of 40 electric vehicles and 200 e-bicycles, providing carsharing, vanpooling and bike-sharing in neighborhoods and a rural vanpool service for underserved residents in rural areas. FMBCF will assist with curriculum development on the workforce project.|
