Talent Ready Apprenticeship Connection (TRAC)

Talent Ready Apprenticeship Connection (TRAC) youth apprenticeships provide meaningful work experience for students engaged in learning the skills they need for a successful career. Students split their time between the classroom and workplace, applying knowledge through a hands-on learning routine. As part-time employees of our TRAC partners, students earn a wage pursuing their education toward a high-paying career. By linking the efforts of industry and education, the TRAC program creates a model that is beneficial to both students and businesses. The TRAC program engages students beginning in high school.

What Can Youth Apprenticeship Do For You?

  • Provide paid work experience for students in high-skill and high-paying careers.
  • Engage industry and education partners in a training track that meets their workforce demands.
  • Align curriculum between secondary and post-secondary educational institutions to offer recognized accreditations.
  • Increase the skilled workforce in Utah.
  • Create systemic change by providing high-quality work experiences in communities where they are needed.
  • Inform students, teachers, parents, and companies of youth apprenticeship opportunities.
