Pre-Apprenticeship

 

The YCAL Pre-Apprenticeship Program is designed for High School Seniors, enrolled at YCAL’s Partner Schools, who are considering pursuit of an Apprenticeship in a chosen trade after graduation.  In 2018-2019, there are two Pre-Apprenticeship specializations offered by YCAL in partnership with The Kinsley Education Center and the Manufacturer’s Association of South Central PA.  

 

WHAT IS A PRE-APPRENTICESHIP?
A Pre-Apprenticeship is designed to be an introductory, experiential learning program to help an interested party determine if pursuing an Apprenticeship in a specific field is the right career fit for their needs. On a national level, Pre-Apprenticeships are found to increase the success rates of individuals entering Registered Apprenticeships, which is a benefit to the Apprentice and to the employer.

WHY PRE-APPRENTICESHIP?
A Pre-Apprenticeship gives students the ability to explore a career before entering the workforce after graduation, all while developing other transferrable skills, should they decide that pursuing a Registered Apprenticeship is not in their post-graduation career plan. Please note that while Pre-Apprenticeship allows for exposure and relationship-building with the host company, completion does not guarantee the student employment at this company upon graduation.
