Yes, you can! You will coordinate your work schedule with your supervisor and can customize it to fit your extracurricular activities. 

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

The Modern Apprenticeship Program is open to all students who are on track to graduate, regardless of their previous work experience.  

Most employers offer the opportunity for their apprentices to shadow a variety of different departments and roles within their pathways. Those opportunities, however, do vary between employers. Contact your supervisor if you are interested in exploring other positions.

If you decide to attend college outside of Indianapolis during the third year of your apprenticeship, many companies are willing to work with you to find a way to continue working. You can discuss those options with your supervisor. 

Employers can cover some of the costs of related instruction during your apprenticeship. The scope of that cost, however, differs from employer to employer.  

The work is year-round, but you and your supervisor will connect to plan work schedules for school holidays and breaks.
