What we do

Career Education + Work Experience = Engaged, Employable West Virginia Youth

“Thank you for an amazing chance to explore The Greenbrier. I would definitely do it all over again.”  Bree M. (December 2016). Learn more about this apprentice day at: apprenticeday.org/apprentice-day-at-greenbrier-resort-wv/

Apprentice Network, Inc. (ANI) is a partnership between the program staff, the homeschool network, Elementary School staff, Middle School staff, High School staff, Greenbrier County Board of Education, local professionals and of course, the Apprentice Network Youth Apprentices (ANYAS). Programming occurs year-round. Our impact is felt beyond programming by helping ANYA Graduates identify employment opportunities and continued mentorship into their early 20’s.

We offer an introductory to intermediate level of education, exposure, training, and career development. ANI Youth Apprentices (ANYAs) learn personal and career awareness, work basics, 21st-century skills, technical skills, business skills, and the fundamentals for living a successful and rewarding life.

Our Youth Apprentices demonstrate an increase in 21st-century skills of productivity, accountability, leadership, responsibility, initiative, and self-direction. We offer activities including resume building, vision boarding, career assessments, creating a career portfolio, touring a college campus(s), team building activities, and more!
