Leon County Government continues to enhance its Leon Works Junior Apprenticeship Program by expanding program eligibility to include all Leon County high school juniors and seniors who attend a public, charter, private or Leon County virtual school.  The County is now accepting applications for the program for the Fall 2023 semester through Friday, March 31 at
In partnership with Leon County Schools and CareerSource Capital Region, the program provides Leon County high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to earn hourly wages while building valuable workforce skills. The new policy, which went into effect on January 1, 2023, now provides high school students who attend charter, private and virtual school, along with public school, the opportunity to learn skilled trades while getting paid.
Since 2017, the program has placed students in many different positions to build valuable workplace skills and earn hourly wages.
The program is currently looking to fill positions in the following areas:
  • (1) Computer Aided Design (CAD)
  • (1) Construction Contract Management
  • (2) EMT Paramedic
  • (1) Fleet Mechanic
  • (1) Graphics and Digital Design – Community and Media Relations
  • (2) IT Tech Support
  • (1) Medical Administrative Associate
  • (1) Web Development
To participate, students must be enrolled in or have completed a high school level Career and Technical Education (CTE) course or program. Students in the program will earn an hourly salary, elective credit towards their high school diploma and will also complete the CareerSource Capital Region’s LEAP training, preparing them to enter the workforce after graduation. Students within the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WOIA) qualifications are highly encouraged to apply.
The Leon Works Junior Apprenticeship program helps prepare youth for well-paying job opportunities into the future. By the year 2026, more than 70,000 skilled jobs are projected to be available in Leon County. To meet the needs of growing job sectors, Leon County aims to achieve the strategic goal of connecting 7,000 students to middle-skilled careers that require more than a high school diploma but less than a four-year degree. The Junior Apprentice program is one of many ways Leon County is preparing to meet the needs of the future and connecting promising young adults with local job opportunities.
