Posted: January 26, 2017

As the cost for tuition at four year universities continue to skyrocket, so does the dismay among high-school students who wish to continue their education after graduation.

But now, there’s a new option for those students who wish to learn a skill which could lead to high paying careers.

On this edition of Northwest Now, we take a closer look at Governor Jay Inslee’s Youth Apprenticeship program. We’ll hear from Bates Technical College President Ron Langrell, the Governor’s Office, L&I, and the Washington Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee.
