High-school apprenticeship programs give kids a chance to earn money, credit, work experience
from The Seattle Times
This fall, about 120 Washington high-school juniors and seniors will earn a paycheck, work experience, and high school and college credit — all at the same time. They're becoming apprentices through Career Connect Washington, a state program that is expanding the number of youth apprentices with $25 million in money from the Legislature over the next two years. The aim of the program is to get more young people started on their careers by combining school and work experience.
