Your Vision

At the Summer Careers Academy, we know you want an exciting and high paying career, where you’re respected and have the freedom and independence to build a dream life for yourself and your family. In order to do that, you need money, a clear path, and support along the way.

Your Challenge

Pressures at home, in school, and from friends can be complicated and challenging. That can make you feel trapped and anxious.

Your Way Forward

We understand that feeling of being stuck. We experienced it ourselves and know what it means to overcome barriers. We believe no young adult should have to face these challenges alone. That’s why we are offering the Summer Careers Academy – a Registered Youth Apprenticeship Program that has helped others and can help you, too.

Your Next Step

The application period for the 2023 cohort is now closed, but submit your interest in the 2024 cohort now! Once the 2024 application opens, the process has three easy steps:

  1. STEP 1: Complete the Participant Application Form and attend one of the Information Sessions
  2. STEP 2: Enroll in the 8-week summer Registered Youth Apprenticeship Program, which includes free training and a paid work experience in a promising career earning a "Learning Wage" ($12.56/hour). We provide support to help you succeed, including food, transportation, and language services. 
  3. STEP 3: Complete the summer program and take advantage of your desirable new skills and certifications, connections with respected employers, and all-access pass to an immediate, high paying career (or use the academic credit and scholarships you earned to continue with a debt-free college apprenticeship).

Your Success

Complete the Participant Interest Form now and know that you, too, can have the debt-free life of your dreams. Stop feeling anxious about your future or stuck in an underpaid, dead-end job. Instead, earn good money this summer as you gain new skills and explore a high paying career. Contact Summer Careers Academy project coordinator, Heather Kasey, with any questions at 919-357-2878 (m).
