Working Together To Create An Innovative System

The modern youth apprentices split their time between their traditional high school classroom and the workplace. They earn a wage while receiving hands-on work experience where they can apply their classroom learning. 

By the conclusion of the program, students will have:

  • Meaningful work experience
  • A nationally recognized industry certification
  • A professional network
  • The opportunity to earn debt-free college credit
