Begin a Career in Healthcare
The Youth Apprenticeship Program and Rochester General Health System gives city school students the chance to succeed and achieve a career in health care. Each participant earns not just his/her high school diploma, but a Certificate of Completion attesting to the fact that the student has had youth employment competency training, and has the skills necessary to be a conscientious and productive employee.
This training, provided by both the school and the program makes students eligible for entry level positions such as:
- Patient Care Technician
