Youth Apprenticeship is a one or two-year program that combines school-based and work-based learning. As a youth apprentice, students will earn an hourly wage, train with professionals in the field, and earn credits for high school.

Apprenticeships are open to juniors and seniors; they include specialized training, at the high school and/or off campus locations. Apprenticeship students are supported by the School-to-Career Coordinator:
