Pre-Apprenticeship Program

The Pre-Apprenticeship Program is a workplace-mentoring program that matches high school juniors and seniors with small businesses throughout the county.  The youth are provided an opportunity to learn marketable job skills while still attending high school.  Youth receive a stipend for a maximum of 520 hours at the prevailing minimum wage and participate in a savings incentive plan. CAP Riverside matches dollar-for-dollar up to $100 saved by each youth after he/she successfully completes the program. The Employer/Mentor also provides matching funds up to $100 saved by the youth.
