Youth Apprenticeship

Youth Apprenticeship

Youth Apprenticeship takes career exploration to the next level and allows high school students an opportunity to learn highly technical skills from a trained worksite mentor and get paid. Student spend a designated amount of time learning the skill from the mentor and are then allowed to progress on their own until they reach the industry standard for that skill. It is the goal of youth apprenticeship to expose students to a wide variety of workplace departments and maximize their career exposure. Wright Tech’s program will provide training based on statewide youth apprenticeship curriculum guidelines, endorsed by business and industry. Students work 10+ hours per week during the school year and are encouraged to work during the summer, depending on business needs. Availability is dependent on the local employer needs and mentoring capability. Contact your high school counselor for additional details.
