Career Connect Opportunities for Education & Industry

Open Your Business to Youth Apprenticeships

Demand from our local industries tells us how workforce shortages are a barrier to their growth. Educators, in particular, those in Career-technical education, need our help connecting their students to local workplace environments, expectations and job opportunities. The Youth Engagement initiative is currently organizing efforts to bring youth apprenticeships in manufacturing, construction and more to Whatcom County.
