Apprenticeship Locations

 

 

 

 Applications for November 2022 – June 2023 apprenticeships in California are now open! Check back in October to apply to Colorado and Montana sites for the March – November 2023 season.

 

Apprenticeship is a very personal form of education that relies on the energy you put in and the relationship you develop with your mentor. No two mentor sites are the same and no two apprenticeships on the same operation are identical one year to the next.

Please take the time to read through the site descriptions and choose a mentor site that will be a good fit for you! As you read through the descriptions, ask yourself:

  • Where do you want to be?
  • What skills are you hoping to learn?
  • What type of operation do you want to be on?
  • What type of learner are you?
  • What type of mentor are you hoping for?

Remember…you will get out of an apprenticeship what you put in. So find an operation that you are ready to invest a lot of energy into before you apply!
