WHAT IS THE HIRED! APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM?

The HIRED! Apprenticeship Program is a workforce-preparation and apprenticeship enterprise designed to meet the employment and career-exploration needs of Army teens 15-18 years of age. The HIRED! Apprenticeship Program is designed to be a real-world workforce-preparation experience.

The “HIRED!” moniker encompasses the two main components of the program, being “HIRed” – actually working in a career path – and “EDucation” – that is, participating in workforce-preparation and Postsecondary-Education exploration classes, which prepare the participant for life after high school. HIRED! Apprenticeships offer experiences within distinct career paths designed to help participants determine whether their desired career paths are viable career choices for their future.

HOW LONG IS THE HIRED! APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM? HIRED! Apprenticeship Terms consist of four (4) twelve (12)-week terms repeated annually. Participants 15-18 years of age are able to participate in a maximum of two (2) terms per calendar year for three (3) consecutive years (total of 6 terms). Within each twelve (12)-week term, apprentices are expected to commit to fifteen (15) hours training and work in a seven (7)-day period for a total of 180 hours per term. Training is presented by the HIRED! Program Coordinator, the Placement work site, and the EDGE Program.

HIRED! Summer Term Option Apprentices may complete their authorized two (2) HIRED! Terms all at one time during the summer, meaning they would actually participate 30 hours in a seven-day period plus additional trainings. This exception can only be made in the summer.
