Chamber Chat LIVE! - Discover Youth Apprenticeships
Join us through Zoom for our interactive meetings with Chamber Collaborative President Valerie Rochon, each second and fourth Friday at 1 p.m.
Apprenticeship stakeholders – employers, educators, and workforce professionals – across the country are launching apprenticeship programs for youth ages 16-24. These programs, also known as youth apprenticeship, combine technical classroom instruction with paid work experience. They provide the foundation for young people to choose multiple career pathways: enroll in college, begin employment, or a combination.
- Youth engage in work-based/experiential learning and continue in furthering their education during (dual enrollment) or after high school and/or college.
- Schools find new ways to engage students, connecting them to career pathways during their secondary and post-secondary education, increasing the potential for career success.
- Businesses gain access to a talent pipeline of entry-level workers to address skills shortages in the workplace.
