A message on COVID-19
When The Universe Says, “Pivot”, What Does Apprentice Learning Do?
COVID-19. We could stop there; except, we can’t. We have too much at stake. The world as we know it has lost its clothing and all is laid bare. Schools, businesses, parks, and malls are closed. With all this, one could presume that the work of Apprentice Learning has no place in this “new world”; that everything is on pause because our Apprentices have no worksites to visit each week; because summer programs may cease to exist during a global pandemic. There are a lot of ways we could hear, “NO!” in the stillness.
However, at Apprentice Learning, we hear obligation and opportunity. Our mission: “Leveraging career explorations to teach skills and nurture dreams” still applies. Our clarion call “to spark passions and interests; to give a sense of purpose to a young person’s present and future” hasn’t changed.
So when the Universe says, “Pivot”, we pivot.
Experience Ignites Purpose
We believe in launching the dreams of our city’s youth.
At Apprentice Learning, we leverage career exploration to teach skills and nurture dreams for middle school students in Boston Public Schools. Our programs teach essential work skills and expose students to different careers and adults who are passionate about their professions. By sparking growth and igniting a sense of purpose, we open doors to success from summer jobs to high school, college, and eventual careers.
