Youth Apprenticeship in American Today: Connecting High School Students to Apprenticeship is the first publication coming out of New America's yearlong research of the opportunities and challenges for growing high-quality youth apprenticeship programs across the county.

Youth Apprenticeship is an evolving concept in the U.S. with no single, legal definition. Generally, a youth apprenticeship program meets the same four criteria of a Registered apprenticeship program, but is designed specifically for apprentices that at the start of the program are enrolled as high school students. Because these programs involve high school students, youth apprenticeship programs typically function as a partnership across employers, high schools, and postsecondary institutions.
