In Summer 2018, Playground City is adding a new spin to an old idea! Apprenticeship Sprints will enable youth ages 17 to 24 the opportunity to explore multiple 21st Century careers while receiving mentorship, training toward professional certifications, and a real wage.

We Are Training "Swiss Army Knives"

The 21st Century economy demands workers who possess multiple abilities (like a Swiss Army Knife). Apprenticeship Sprints expose youth to a variety of real-world work experiences giving them an initial perspective on the skills and knowledge necessary for different 21st Century occupations.

What are Apprentice Sprints?

Quick, iterative apprenticeship experiences that expose learners to many different occupations within a short period of time. This enables learners to actively observe a variety of occupation scenarios and their relevant skills/competencies.
