The U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (ETA) today announced the award of $42,296,247 in Youth Apprenticeship Readiness grants to 14 organizations to increase participation by youth, ages 16 to 24, in new or existing Registered Apprenticeship Programs (RAPs).

These grants will allow educational entities—including traditional, alternative, and non-traditional schools; and programs that serve out-of-school youth, school boards, workforce boards, employers, workforce partners, and other apprenticeship intermediaries—to partner to develop and establish new apprenticeship models for youth or expand existing apprenticeship programs for youth.

Grant recipients will seek to expand opportunities to prepare 16 to 24 year old registered apprentices for careers in industries including manufacturing, information technology, cybersecurity, and healthcare.
