Apprenticeship assistance for youth who have experienced foster care/homelessness

 WA Passport to Apprenticeship 

 The WA Passport to Careers program is designed to remove barriers for people in state-recognized apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship programs who have experienced foster care or homelessness, so that they can complete their apprenticeship or pre-apprenticeship program. Passport to Apprenticeship covers occupational-specific costs (i.e. tuition for classes, occupation-related tools and clothing, electricity bills, etc.), and provides case management to help support apprentices and pre-apprentices with their long-term goals.
