Founded in 2012 to serve students in Boston public schools, Apprentice Learning uses career exploration to support the transition from middle school to high school, open pathways towards higher education and expand students’ social networks to link them to more opportunities to thrive.
We partner with schools and work as part of the middle school team to teach career skills and help students enter the workforce fully equipped for success. We engage over 40 local businesses who volunteer to mentor a young person during an apprenticeship or host a group of students for a one-day workplace exploration.
Participating schools are the Boston Teachers Union K-8 School and the Mission Hill K-8 School in Jamaica Plain and the Jackson/Mann K-8 School in Brighton. These are all Boston Public Schools.
Apprentice Learning acknowledges and honors the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals. We pledge ourselves to creating and maintaining an environment that respects diverse traditions, heritages and experiences.
