74% of employers want to grow their businesses



A majority of them look outside of Idaho for talent…let’s change that.

We can help employers find career-seekers, not just workers


  • The talent is here. With IBE’s apprenticeship program, we have a way to connect our classrooms to careers.

  • The Youth Apprenticeship Program connects people aged 16-24, to training and careers in Idaho. Building workforce-ready labor requires a collaborative effort among government, business, and education. Youth Apprenticeship provides education, work experience, and access to postsecondary education, training, and certifications.

  • This program also promotes individual economic stability, business growth, and Idaho’s economy. It’s also the cornerstone in helping IBE reach our goal of having 60% of our 25- to 34-year-old workers hold a postsecondary credential.

  • Through a joint effort with the Idaho Workforce Development Council, Idaho Department of Labor, and Idaho Career and Technical Education, IBE is scaling up Idaho’s Youth Apprenticeship program, with a goal of placing 400 apprentices by 2024 in some of the 1,200 federal apprenticeships. 

  • Are you ready to expand and upskill your workforce, find local talent, and grow business? IBE Youth Apprenticeship Program is ready to help you.

Program Highlights:


  • 220 apprentices placed to date

  • 62 sponsors approved

  • High participation in rural areas
