The Urban Apprentice

Succeeding in business requires understanding the "rules of the game". The Urban Apprentice is a 15-session curriculum that tests intelligence, creativity, quick-thinking, teamwork and business acumen.

Youth are thoroughly schooled in business concepts such as advertising, negotiation, and sales. The curriculum uses a range of formats including mini-lessons, group challenges, computer simulation, and off-site field studies to connect concepts to real businesses and the lives of youth.

Upon completion, youth are welcome to apply for a Youth Express apprenticeship.
