The program is open to seniors and juniors in all three comprehensive high schools in Allegany County as well as the Center for Career and Technical Education. Students select from job descriptions listed by our employer partners, complete an application packet, and submit referrals through their guidance office to apply for their desired positions. Employers will interview qualified students and hire based on the interview process, application completion and relevant academic qualifications.
The 450-hour apprenticeship program will teach students industry specific skills, provide hands-on and real-work experience, while also increasing interpersonal and social skills as they apply to the world of work. Students will receive three credits applied towards graduation for the work component and will receive a credit for a related curriculum of instruction that they may have already completed, or will take concurrently with the program.
