A targeted path to success

Too many young people enter college without an understanding of how higher education can further their career goals (or even what their career goals are). Apprenticeship helps shape ideas about career while building transferrable skills.

Explore Opportunities

Creating a skilled workforce

Even in times of low unemployment, many jobs go unfilled because employers cannot find people with the right skillset because too often, students graduate from high school and college without the advanced-skills needed to be successful in today’s 21st-century workforce.

Apprenticeship is an options multiplier

Apprentices complete the program having gained meaningful work experience, an industry certification, debt-free college credit and an established professional network. And, they have options: convert the apprenticeship into a high-demand position in their industry, or continue their higher education…or both!
