Trade Up

 Trade Up aims to increase awareness of the skilled trades as a viable career opportunity for students between the ages of 13 and 18 years old. High school graduates have the ability to earn a good living while learning a skilled trade through apprenticeships.

We help graduates planning to enter the skilled trades discover enjoyable, sustainable career paths and connect them to apprenticeships and job opportunities. For those undecided on a career path, our representatives provide a safe sounding board to articulate goals and reservations, and to explore options.

Teachers & Counselors
Our representatives enjoy speaking to classrooms and school organizations about the many opportunities within the skilled trades. This is a great opportunity for students to ask questions and learn about their options after graduation.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about paid apprenticeship programs and career opportunities in the skilled trades. Our goals is to promote and support the transition from high school to career.
