Talbot County Sponsors Orientation for Youth Apprenticeship Program
The Talbot County Department of Economic Development and Tourism is partnering with Talbot County Public Schools and the Maryland Department of Labor to sponsor a virtual apprenticeship orientation for businesses on May 19 at 8 a.m.
“Our goal is simple,” says Jodie Colombo, School-to-Career Facilitator for TCPS. “We want to recruit more local businesses to participate in our Youth Apprenticeship Program.”
The Talbot County Youth Apprenticeship Program pairs local employers with students who want to “earn while they learn.” Juniors and seniors are eligible to work in career track occupations while earning both a fair wage and credits that count toward graduation.
Talbot County’s program is part of the Maryland Department of Labor’s Apprenticeship Maryland Program (AMP). It provides an opportunity for businesses to introduce students to in-demand careers and helps develop a pipeline of future employees.
The program also gives students the opportunity to get hands-on training and evaluate career options before investing in higher education. Youth apprentices gain valuable job skills and often have an advantage when seeking employment after high school.
