Research demonstrates that providing young people with meaningful opportunities to engage in the community, to have consistent and positive adult mentoring, and be publically recognized for healthy, productive activities, promotes prosocial behaviors and confidence. Registered Apprenticeship provides these opportunities and more. Helping individuals to chart a vibrant career path through apprenticeship is beneficial for all involved– the apprentice, the business, the local community, and society at large. We can see the significance of this on a daily basis as young apprentices embark on their journey with businesses and industries throughout the Commonwealth. We are grateful to all of the employers who have registered with the apprenticeship program and simply delighted to work with them for the duration.
