Policy Series Reports

Youth Apprenticeship Carolina is part of the larger Apprenticeship Carolina, which has seen a 631 percent increase in registered apprenticeship programs and a 556 percent increase in the number of apprentices in the state since the program started in 2007.  The youth apprenticeship program is unique in that it focuses on students in high school, giving them the opportunity to continue with their classroom education while simultaneously gaining on-the-job training and an early start on wage progression.

Employers who take on apprenticeships are awarded a $1,000 tax credit per apprentice and are given access to complimentary apprenticeship consultants to guide them through the registered apprenticeship development process. Apprenticeship Carolina has gained attention from across the country and has been featured in reports by the White House and Brookings Institution
