Youth apprenticeship delivers paid work-based learning to students still enrolled in high school, as well as recent graduates. As cybersecurity and technology stakeholders in government, industry, and the education sector explore youth apprenticeship and other youth work-based learning options, it's important to acknowledge the intricate work of partnership development and program design that are needed to deliver equitable opportunities for students of all socioeconomic backgrounds. This webinar, coinciding with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Youth Apprenticeship Week, will share advice and lessons learned that can support initiatives that meet the needs of employers and young learners alike.
