Educators and Modern Youth Apprenticeship

Different Learners, Different Environments

New York high-school students are struggling to find meaningful work and direction, as school often does not provide students with a supported, career-attached curriculum and environment. At the same time, major New York companies are looking for skilled employees to fill high-paying, in-demand positions. CareerWise New York recognizes that educators cannot bear all the responsibility of preparing today’s students for the highly-skilled workforce of tomorrow. By facilitating a relationship between schools and businesses and offering assistance on curriculum development, we’re helping educators bridge the gap between education and workforce demands.

CareerWise New York apprenticeships create an applied-learning environment for students who thrive when tackling real-world problems. Apprentices are onsite with their employer 16-24 hours per week, so close coordination on schedule flexibility and graduation requirements is a major focus. Our team works closely with districts, schools, and counselors to ensure a smooth process for students, educators, and businesses.
