Create Purpose Through Volunteering:
Apprentice Day offers youth an unparalleled chance to learn from business leaders across the United States. Through organizing and executing events, we support our volunteers to enable the youth apprentices within a fun and far-reaching community social circle of mentors, role models and newly discovered career paths that can ignite and strengthen imagination and ambition to everyone involved.
By supporting this effort, you are offering a dynamic platform to empower youth to become our next leaders.
“I volunteered at the Greenbrier Resort during an apprentice day in 2015. I loved taking photos while getting to know the kids, parents, and hotel staff. It was so amazing to see kids work their dream jobs and I was so happy to be involved!” – Travis Farley, Employer w/ Travis Farley Design and Volunteer (pictured above left)
“National Apprentice Day is free for kids and businesses. We are building a community of business leaders to guide young adults in exploring their dream jobs because hands-on learning is priceless. Our mission is to get kids out of the classroom and into the workforce, to start thinking about their future at a young age.” – Christina Entenmann, Executive Director, Apprentice Network, Inc.
