Finally, the year everyone waits for! The year we all talked about as we enter into our first year of high school. “I can’t wait until I’m a senior,” was a line I constantly said when I was growing up. Now that I am officially a senior…I’ll say, and with all honesty… I wish I was still a freshman. Days were much simpler then. College and scholarships applications weren’t knocking on my door yet and Jostens order forms weren’t due. Fears of not getting into my choice college were nonexistent and thoughts of attending my last high school events had not yet crossed my mind.
High school is a period for growth and a chance to discover new things. If you have an idea of what you want to pursue in the future, applying for a youth apprenticeship is a beneficial opportunity. It can help you explore a profession more in-depth by working in a position specific to your field of interest. You get to learn from those who are already in that profession while gaining valuable skills and experience.
