Our buildings will always need maintenance; our airplanes and ferries and boats will always need to be put together; our children will always need to be taken care of; our offices will always need workers.
Most apprenticeships require a high school diploma or GED. Most have minimum ages of 17 or 18, so they would be options for our graduates.
