Youth Apprenticeship: The Journey Begins

On October 16, 2017, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee met with the partners, community organizations and local-area employers to discuss how the first year of Youth Apprenticeship has gone. The 30-minute meeting was used to brief Governor Inslee on how this Youth Apprenticeship program is not only benefiting our local high school students, but the employers who are in need of highly-skilled, and highly-trained workforce.

The skills-gap in aerospace and advanced manufacturing continues to grow and through registered Youth Apprenticeship, employers can finally develop a pipeline of talent at a young age, with a greater chance at retaining these future high school graduates as lifelong learners of the trade and industry.
