It was standing room only at the Apprenticeship & Trades Fair held at Mark Morris High School on Jan 24.

Students in eighth through twelfth grade and their families had an opportunity to connect with local employers and unions and learn more about career paths. Attendees heard first-hand experiences of young apprentices in the trades, learned the benefits of apprenticeship, and found out more about the district’s pre-apprenticeship program slated to begin Fall 2018.

“This event was made possible through the collaborative partnership between our regional union representatives and JH Kelly,” said Jill Diehl, Career and College Readiness Director. “We are grateful for the community’s support to provide this opportunity to our students who will be prepared to join our future local workforce.”
