The Open Roads Apprenticeship is a 60-hour paid intensive job-training program in our bike shop designed for young people to gain essential career readiness skills. Youth who complete other programs in Open Roads and show the drive and skills required to move forward will be able to apply for an Apprenticeship. Participants will be mentored by Open Roads staff in job skills needed to successfully run the Open Roads Bike Shop. When youth successfully complete the requirements of the Apprenticeship, they will have the full support of Open Roads in applying for future jobs. This includes resume development, interview skills, workplace etiquette, demonstration of skills and abilities, support in the application process, and serving as a reference.
