We are dedicated to designing tomorrow’s workforce through exposure, training and experience.
Our modern youth apprenticeship adopts a "learn and earn" model that pays high school students as they do meaningful work alongside adults.
It prepares students for a career, diversifies the talent pipeline and delivers business results.
Since launching in 2017, we have sought to maximize the return on investment for both our graduates and our organization by growing our apprentices’ professional experience while creating a pipeline of young trained talent.
The talent we’ve helped mold and forge the careers of is top-tier — but don’t just take our word for it. Pinnacol’s Apprenticeship Program has earned recognition across the state and the country.
We are proud to help pioneer the CareerWise Colorado apprenticeship model, shaping the future of Colorado workers.
Our organization looks forward to many more years of successful collaboration with our partners.
Colorado recognizes the immense benefits offered by
providing young people an opportunity to learn a trade while finishing their education is an immense feat valued by the communities benefiting from the trained talent.
In June 2017, Colorado recognized the efforts and contributions of Pinnacol and CareerWise Colorado’s inaugural apprentice class by gathering for Signing Day, when apprentices from around the state proudly committed as apprentices with their future employers.
During the annual celebration, Gov. John Hickenlooper and business leaders from across the state honored our first apprentice cohort.
