Mentoring Matters: The Role of Mentoring in Registered Apprenticeship Programs for Youth
As registered apprenticeship programs continue to grow in popularity, policymakers and practitioners must consider ensuring programs maintain high quality. Structured mentoring is a hallmark of registered apprenticeship and requires further exploration to understand its challenges and best practices. Mentors support, advise, and instruct apprentices on the job, directly affecting an apprentice’s learning and persistence toward completion.
Leading into National Apprenticeship Week, please join the Urban Institute, in collaboration with Opportunity America, for a virtual event on why mentoring matters. Hear from thought leaders, industry specialists, mentors, and apprentices as we discuss the challenges and practical implementation of mentoring for youth apprentices. In addition to a lively panel discussion, the event will feature a demonstration of Urban’s new mentoring tools designed to strengthen how youth apprenticeships are delivered.
