The ITA Youth WORK in Trades program allows students to start their apprenticeship while still in high school. They earn graduation credit and log apprenticeship training hours at the same time. Students can be signed up anytime during the school year.
You might already be eligible to sign up as a Youth WORK apprentice. If you are a high school student with paid part-time employment in a trade, you may be a “hidden apprentice”. Talk to your school’s Youth WORK contact about the kind of work that qualifies, and about registering as a Youth WORK in Trades apprentice.
