Connecting employers to talent, and students to opportunity.

CareerWise USA envisions an education system in which students of all backgrounds can learn in both classroom and workplace settings, developing the skills and network young people need to thrive in a changing economy, redefining how employers develop the talent required to power their growth, and increasing equity and prosperity across society to the benefit of students and employers alike.

Our mission is to build a nationwide movement that efficiently develops and expands high-quality, modern youth apprenticeship systems by providing best-in-class tools, technology, consulting, and collaborative learning experiences. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are at the core of our business-led, student-centered model.


Any student—regardless of future plans—can benefit from apprenticeship.

A student can start as an apprentice and end with a Ph.D., or apprenticeship can train a student to step directly into a bookkeeper position so they can go on to be a CFO. It’s a model of education that reveals multiple options to career and higher education.

Apprenticeship is not a diversion from higher education—it’s a rigorous education option that combines theoretical learning with practical learning that focuses career and education objectives. It can also be a direct path to high-paying, in-demand jobs in modern fields such as business operations, financial services, advanced manufacturing, technology and healthcare. You can find details on each of our apprentice occupations here.
