The Manufacturers Association's Pre-Apprenticeship Program for Youth

The Pre-Apprenticeship Program for Youth develops the pipeline for the next generation of advanced manufacturing professionals while they are still in high school. Through classroom and on-the-job training, the Youth Apprenticeship Program creates young, skilled workers as you grow your workforce and replace your retiring subject matter experts.

Pre-Apprenticeship for Youth Bridges the Gap

Employers: Do you need to fill in-deman manufacturing jobs?

Students: Do you enjoy hands-on work or want to explore career options?

Educators: Do you have students looking for an alternate career pathway?

The Pre-Apprenticeship Program for Youth is right for you!

Through this program, employers open their doors to students seeking modern manufacturing experience. Students can complete job shadows, paid internships, part-time employment, and possibly earn college credits. The program can provide a jumpstart to a NYS Registered Apprenticeship when the individual turns 18.

What skills will your workforce need over the next few years? How will you replace retiring employees?
