About this talk

Creating apprenticeships that begin in high school, provide paid on-the-job training, and result in college degrees and full-time jobs, is an idea that is gaining traction across a variety of industries. But focusing such programs on young people interested in working with children and families is fertile, but largely unexplored, territory. The pandemic has made clear the economy cannot function without well-trained, well-compensated teachers, childcare providers, and social service workers to support families, care for and educate children, and create quality early learning environments so that parents can thrive in the world of work. As a statewide sector intermediary, Early Care & Education Pathways to Success (ECEPTS) is developing Youth Apprenticeships in Careers with Children & Families in partnership with three community colleges in California. Aligned with professional credentials and academic requirements, the apprenticeships reflect a deep commitment to equity and provide extensive supports to ensure participant success. This workshop will present an overview of the ECEPTS Youth Apprenticeship model, highlighting lessons learned and the “secret sauce” behind its success.
