North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper proclaimed November 13 - 19 as Apprenticeship Week to recognize how apprenticeship programs strengthen the state’s economy and help students succeed.

Last year, more than 13,000 North Carolinians participated in an apprenticeship program with over 1,600 employers statewide.

Of them, almost 1,000 were considered youth apprentices who participated in programs in several different industries including, advanced manufacturing, clean energy, construction, health care, IT and logistics.
