Directly touch the life of a local student as an ANI Navigator. You will also be supporting a larger movement to develop our next generation and workforce.

Navigators guide Apprentice Network Youth Apprentices (ANYA) in various career-driven projects, workshops, apprentice days, etc. that expose them to career development opportunities. This professional navigation allows ANYAs to develop technical skills and knowledge in the field and offers them an opportunity to contribute to the workplace. See below for members of the 2019-2020 Employer-Mentor cohort. (coming soon)

Apprentice Network’s Navigators must work in the West Virginia community and commit to hosting a workshop(s), financially contribute to the organization (in-kind or monetary), recruit other companies that would benefit our Youth Apprentices, offer career counseling, and/or host an apprentice day(s).
