Our Teen Apprenticeship Program pairs students with seasoned teaching professionals in fields ranging from sports and arts to STEM and special interest. Over 8-12 weeks, apprentices work alongside these experts, gaining firsthand experience in teaching youth while also developing a range of skills including leadership, communication, and organizational capabilities. This program, generously funded by a grant from the City of La Cañada Flintridge, aims to bridge the gap between academic learning and real-world application.
Prospective apprentices are encouraged to apply if they meet the following criteria: at least 16 years of age, are currently enrolled in school, and have reliable transportation to CCLCF. The commitment is 2-3 hours per week, and while the initial positions are voluntary, there is potential for paid opportunities upon successful completion of the program.
Contractors participating in the program will benefit from additional support in their classes, workshops, or activities, with the added advantage of shaping the professionals of tomorrow.
