The Allegheny Intermediate Unit’s Apprenticeship Program consists of one half-day or day-long learning experience per month over a six or seven month period during the school year.
Students meet and work with local professionals who are willing to share their expertise, experience and enthusiasm for what they do for a living with the students. The program provides hands-on, behind-the-scenes experiences and gives students the opportunities to make connections with organizations and people who can help them as they pursue their career choices.
