Apprentices EARN while they LEARN.

Not only do apprentices gain much needed, hands-on training inside and outside of the classroom, they also earn a living wage from day one. This means, unlike traditional post-high school education, apprentices do not accumulate thousands of dollars in debt and have the ability to build a solid, stable middle-class life.
