“Many of our grade 8 students experience the world of work for the first time as a result of their internships with Apprentice Learning and the experience has proven to be tremendously impactful and eye opening for them. We have witnessed students’ growth and developing maturity as a result of the program. Our faculty agreed to provide classroom time for the program because we recognize the importance and value of making learning relevant to students’ lives beyond school to ensure that students acquire both exposure to the rich career offerings in their community, the ‘soft skills’ essential to job success, and critical support finding jobs and programs that support their interests.”
