It’s National Apprenticeship Week! To celebrate, we’ll be sharing success stories of how Job Corps has helped students become apprentices.

You might be wondering, “What is an apprenticeship?” The U.S. Department of Labor says it best: “An apprenticeship is an employer-driven, ‘earn-while-you-learn’ model. It combines on-the-job training with instruction tied to national skills standards.”
