Apprenticeships for young people can be a key connection point into the world of work. These programs provide opportunities for people of all backgrounds to develop true careers with growth potential.

How do we make earn-and-learn pathways a more common and equitable option for all 16-to-24-year-olds across the country?

Join us during this National Apprenticeship Week virtual event to discuss the promise of apprenticeship for in-school and out-of-school youth, and learn how leaders across the United States are implementing and expanding these programs in their schools, regions, and states.

This event is open to anyone interested in youth apprenticeship. Attendees will hear about how apprenticeship is being advanced at the federal and state level, how states are using those opportunities to create and expand youth apprenticeship programs for in-school and out-of-school youth, and how partnerships help to build and sustain Registered Apprenticeship for young people.
