Passport to Apprenticeship


 Assistance for Former/Current Foster Youth and Unaccompanied Homeless!

The Passport to Apprenticeship Program is designed to connect youth and young adults (ages 14-26) who are currently in or have previously been in the foster care system, including unaccompanied homeless to family-wage careers. Careers beginning with apprenticeships is the primary focus of our program.

Passport to Apprenticeship provides career exploration opportunities, covers occupational-specific costs (i.e. tuition for classes, occupation-related tools and clothing, electricity bills, etc.), and provides case management to help support students with their long-term career goals.

*COVID-19 Update- Our staff is working remote Monday-Friday and is readily available to meet virtually or over the phone with you during this difficult time.*
