“The day was hands down, one of the best job shadowing experiences that I have ever had. Senator Baldwin was very friendly and willing to answer any questions we had.”

“Dear Apprentice Network, We feel like the Apprentice Day practicum is a great opportunity to give back to the community and help kids understand what we do. Maybe it will help them to decide what to do with their career. There’s a lot of different avenues that you can take in the technology field. We feel thankful to participate with your organization and help youth in the local community.”

“Apprentice Network, I am extremely pleased to see community involvement with helping kids explore career paths in a real, hands-on setting showing what reality may look like. This is a great program! I am so glad to incorporate this into our homeschooling life and career skills class. I love the reinforcements of identifying the necessary skills and background needed to support that profession. I believe this could become a go-to program for every avenue of learning whether homeschooling, private school, or public. It helps identify what skills they need to learn for their future and why skills are important.”

“Dear Apprentice Network, This is an excellent opportunity. Next year, I plan to work ahead and recruit students and take an entire group of students to the Apprentice Day at the Greenbrier.”

“Dear Apprentice Network Team, I wanted to take time to thank those who helped make this day possible for not only me, but for everyone that has the opportunity to experience a profession that could possibly be a career choice for their future. I had an exceptional day with the children at LUMC and enjoyed each task assigned. It has given me a better perspective on what is involved in planning and executing a day in the life of a teacher. Thanks to everyone for choosing me to be apart of this program and I appreciate those who work hard to keep the option open to others year after year.”
Sincerely, Rachel Kirby, April 2019. ANi Young Apprentice at Lewisburg United Methodist Church.
