On January 3rd, we hosted an Apprenticeship Open House for those who are interested in the program. Much to our delight, when we sent out the Eventbrite link in early December, we sold out in less than 24 hours. We wanted to make sure that anyone who was interested would be able to get the information shared at the event, so we taped it.

We hope to announce another apprenticeship soon. In the meantime, check out our blog, subscribe to the Apprenticeship newsletter for updates on future open house events, and watch the videos below to see what happened!
