What is it?

The Youth Apprenticeship Program, in partnership with CareerWise Coloraod, is a 3-Year program pairing professional paid work experience and high school or college coursework.

Purpose

  • Include this experience in your college applications by showing that you have the drive and persistence to be successful at a University. 
  • Apprenticeship can focus your goals in order to help you make an informed decision about college and next steps for you. 

An overall confidence multiplier for students to build them up personally and professionally
