In 1989, a group of individuals from Bioscience and Health Careers at Benjamin Franklin High School and Rochester General Hospital came together with a vision to give high school students in the Rochester City School District the opportunity to gain “real-life” work experience in healthcare.
Over two decades later, students from city schools continue to seize the opportunity to work side-by-side with the healthcare professionals at Rochester Regional Health through a one-year comprehensive paid internship. Schools currently participating with the program include:
For the last 10 years 100% of the students who complete the Youth Apprentice program graduate High School and have been accepted into college. Between 80% - 90% of the students who graduate from the Youth Apprentice Program go on to pursue careers in health care.
The Youth Apprentice Program students are the future of health care. Please consider funding the future of health care.
Advantage Federal Credit Union is a firm believer in education and is committed to helping Rochester area students. The Advantage Credit Union offers several scholarship opportunities each year to students in high school.
