Youth Apprenticeship Career Expo

May 13 @ 9:00 am - June 4 @ 5:00 pm

The Louisiana Workforce Commission and the Apprenticeship division, WIOA and the Local Workforce Development collaborated to organize the first-ever Youth Apprenticeship Week at Acadian Middle School in Lafayette, Louisiana. Thanks to the active participation of employers and Apprenticeship Sponsors in the expo, the event was a resounding success. The expo showcased real-life scenarios, providing invaluable insights to over 500 students from six schools in Acadiana, ranging from 8th Grade to 12th Graders. First responders also had the opportunity to demonstrate fundamental life skills to students interested in pursuing careers in those fields. The first expo was particularly focused on students and schools in low-income areas, aiming to broaden their career horizons beyond high school graduation.

We are immensely grateful to the employers and sponsors for their support, which played a crucial role in the success of the first Youth Apprenticeship Week. We are excited to announce that the upcoming Youth Apprenticeship Week promises even more exciting opportunities and experiences next year, so stay tuned for more updates!
