Rzepkowski, announced that Allegany and Carroll counties will join the Apprenticeship Maryland Program. Nine public school systems now participate in the youth apprenticeship program, giving even more Maryland high school juniors and seniors opportunities to explore careers in diverse industries and high-growth career tracks in science, technology, engineering, math and manufacturing. A study commissioned by the Employment Policies Institute quantifies the long-lasting benefits of having a part-time job as a young adult. The study showed that part-time work as a high school senior translates to future career benefits that include higher hourly wages, increased annual earnings and less time spent out of work. Youth apprenticeship students work a minimum of hours with a certified employer while receiving related educational training through their high school. Participating students work with a state-approved employer, learn valuable skills and earn industry credentials and high school credit.
