Career Education + Work Experience = Engaged, Employable Teens
“My experience in Jr. Apprentice was life changing. I did not know that working as a teen would be this hard and that it takes so much work, but pays off at the end.” — Vijay S., JRA Alumni
Jr. Apprentice is a partnership between the program staff, High School staff, local professionals and of course, the Jr. Apprentices. Programming occurs during the academic year. However, its impact is felt beyond by helping Jr. Apprentice graduates identify summer employment opportunities and continued mentorship through their senior year of high school.
