“A great program to begin matching young West Virginians with the needs of employers here at home!” – Charles Mack

I want to directly impact an Apprentice Network Youth Apprentice

If you share our vision to inspire West Virginia youth to put down roots and work to create a more vibrant Appalachian community, please consider contributing financially to help us make it happen.

The cost to sponsor a Youth Apprentice for the Ready2Work Career Academy, held October 2019-April 2020 is $1,194/per student. Your donation will benefit the following:

  • Bi-weekly workforce development classes and workshops including guest speakers on financial literacy, entrepreneurship, etc.
  • Apprentice Day job shadowing opportunities
  • Professional Development Events and College Field Trips
  • An end-of-the year graduation for students and their families

More ways to give:

Corporate matching: Does your company have a donation matching policy? If so, your gift will have double the impact! Inquire with your Human Resources department.

Skills-based support: Do you have expertise in an area that would benefit a nonprofit organization? Examples include marketing, technology, or event planning skills.

In-kind donations: Does your company have products or gift cards that can be used as prizes for our students? All students are involved in a financial literacy challenge for which we seek prizes to reward responsible money management.
