Students work with their employer, school counselor, Work-Based Learning Coordinator, and EmployIndy’s Career Pathways Manager to customize their schedules based on their high school classes. Schedules will vary from student to student. 

EmployIndy supports the recruitment effort of students through resume and interview preparation and ongoing wrap-around support throughout students’ apprenticeship experiences.  

Students must have parental/guardian permission, good school attendance, and be on track to graduate. They must also be authorized to work in the U.S. and have room in their schedule to incorporate work experience.  

During recruitment for the Modern Apprenticeship Program, the point of contact for each school is the Outreach and Recruitment Specialist assigned to your school. Once students are placed with their employers, EmployIndy’s Career Pathways Manager will work with the school to ensure scheduling, placement, and related instruction all run smoothly.  


Modern Apprenticeship is aligned with next-level programs of studies and dual-credit courses, but the program itself is not a credit-awarding institution. The total number of credits a student receives is based on the applicable dual-credits at their school. AP classes remain separate from the program.  

Transportation is not provided. It is the responsibility of the student and their parents/guardians to coordinate transportation.
