During the school year, Parent Information Zoom Sessions are offered (evenings) to provide overviews of our programs, including Youth Train in Trades, Youth Work in Trades and other experiential learning opportunities. We pay the college tuition for the first level of pre-apprenticeship technical training (the "real deal"). On average, it's a savings of $2500-$4000 to families. Check our home page, Twitter, Instagram pages and your school's website for any upcoming information sessions.
