From The Baltimore Sun:

The program provides Howard students the opportunity to “earn and learn” through on-the-job training that can lead to certification, licensing and, in some instances, a one-year completion of a registered apprenticeship, according to the school system.

The program is being offered as a partnership between the school system, the Maryland Department of Labor, and local businesses.
