Youth Apprenticeship Readiness Grant Program

The purpose of this program is to support the development of new or the expansion of existing Registered Apprenticeship Programs (RAP) for youth.

This also includes quality pre-apprenticeship programs that lead to a RAP.

This grant program supports the President’s Executive Order


and the Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration’s goals to promote pre-apprenticeships, to develop a strong youth apprenticeship pipeline, and to expand access to youth apprenticeships.

As a result, the grant will:
1) Increase awareness and adoption of the earn-and-learn apprenticeship model as a solution for experiential learning at the secondary educational level; 2) Increase parental, young adult, and employer awareness around the benefits of youth participation in RAPs, as well as their engagement in these models; 3) Develop and expand the number of RAP opportunities for youth, ensuring they meet RAP standards and pre-apprenticeship programs are of high quality and lead to RAP; 4) Increase academic and career-focused learning among youth, based on sound assessments, to increase employability in the labor force; 5) Promote increased alignment between state education and workforce systems through the development of policies that facilitate the transition from school to a RAP; and 6) Increase RAP opportunities for all youth, particularly underrepresented populations (including women, people of color, ex-offenders, persons with disabilities), youth with barriers to employment, and out-of-school youth.
