Apprenticeship Fair Information
By 2020, nearly three in four jobs in Colorado will require some education beyond high school which includes a certificate, two year or four-year degree. Yet today, only 46% of youth in Adams County enroll in post-secondary programs and only 39% of those youth complete their program within six years.
To raise awareness of career pathways and apprenticeship opportunities, ACEC is coordinating an Apprenticeship Fair targeted to high school juniors and seniors, and out-of-school youth. We are seeking representatives from a variety of industries, including:
- health care
- skilled trades
- advanced manufacturing
- information technology
These businesses will promote opportunities for on-the-job training in high demand careers in an engaging and interactive environment. Additionally, students will be able to fill out applications onsite for current apprenticeships and/or volunteer opportunities.
Students from six different school districts, representing Adams 12, Adams 14, School District 27J, Mapleton, Westminster Public Schools, and Bennett, and out-of-school youth will have up to two hours at the fair to visit with industry representatives. Interested organizations can register here.
