Participating in authentic work, creating relationships with adults who come to depend on your contribution, and being trusted to be responsible are at the heart of engaging work. Apprentice Learning wants a young person’s first work experience to feed his or her career dreams … and shape the plans to get there.
Apprentice Learning works with emerging adolescents to build practical intelligence, critical thinking, and problem solving skills that will help students gain an understanding of the components of a successful work life. This knowledge will improve students’ employability, advance their academic interests, and support their transition to high school as well as towards a higher education pathway.
Our goal is to inspire middle school students in urban public schools in Boston to reach into the future by engaging in the wider community for near-term preparation essential to success.
