A grant from The Frederick County Business Roundtable for Education Fund, one of more than 690 funds managed by The Community Foundation of Frederick County, is providing partial funding to the Youth Apprenticeship Maryland program in Frederick County. The grant was supported with a $15,000 gift to the fund from FirstEnergy Foundation. The fund is one of more than 690 funds managed by The Community Foundation of Frederick County.

Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) was selected as one of two county school systems in Maryland to pilot the Youth Apprenticeship Maryland “Earn and Learn” program. Students work, in the summer following their junior year and during their senior year of high school, with a local employer to learn skills in a state-approved industry, and earn industry credentials and high school credit.

Chad Gerrie, a junior at Catoctin High School, is apprenticing with Alban CAT in Myersville, Maryland, and is gaining heavy equipment set-up, maintenance, and repair skills.
