Parents and students are invited to an information meeting to learn about the Apprenticeship Maryland Program, which was recently approved by the Maryland State Department of Education to be offered in Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS).
Apprenticeship Maryland offers students compensated apprenticeships that prepare them to enter employment in high-skilled, high-wage and/or high demand careers.
MCPS was approved to offer this Youth Apprenticeship Program in 2019. Students from all 25 comprehensive high schools may participate. Participating students start the program in the summer or fall of their junior or senior year and must complete at least 450 hours of work-based training under the supervision of an eligible employer and at least one year of related instruction.
Please review the dates and locations of the meetings below and select/register for which of the three you will be able to attend. MCPS and Maryland state representatives will share more information about this opportunity and related benefits.
