Apprenticeship Maryland Program
The Apprenticeship Maryland Program (AMP) is a CTE completer program that gives high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to "earn and learn" while gaining valuable experience as a youth apprentice. It consists of four credits and is designed to lead to sustainable employment and further education based on high-demand career pathways. The ACPS Youth Apprenticeship Coordinator, Mrs. Breann D'Atri, mentors students hired by approved employer. Participating students must complete a minimum of 450 hours of paid work-based learning under the supervision of an eligible employer. In addition, students are enrolled in an apprenticeship related instruction course. To be eligible for the program, students must be 16 year old or older, have reliable transportation, be on track to graduate, have good attendance, and have two academic references. The AMP program is offered at each of ACPS's comprehensive high schools and the Career Center.
