Developing the Future Workforce through Work Experience


Our 2016-2017 Jr. Apprentices are selected and classes have begun!

Our 2016-2017 Jr. Apprentice cohort has been selected. We met so many amazing and talented high school students at both Bulkeley High School and Pathways Academy of Technology and Design. The selected students represent a diverse range of backgrounds and interests. Our student blog has returned where you can learn more about our students, and our career-readiness curriculum. Congratulations to the newest Jr. Apprentices!
