    The Problem

    The administrative burden and complexity of Pre-Apprenticeship Programs prevent many organizations from even trying to pair with a local post-secondary institution and coordinate a Pre-Apprenticeship>Registered Apprenticeship track for local students.

    For those that do, administration is unnecessarily cumbersome including keeping paperwork up-to-date and filings on time.

    Add Headcount?

    Hiring or Assigning Apprenticeship Admin Work to Existing Employees Is Really Expensive

    If your team is frustrated due to lack of clarity and no system to follow, don’t put even more cooks in the kitchen.

    Rely on a Sponsor?

    The Level of Complexity Is Just as High for 3rd Parties but With Less Visibility & Ability to Communicate

    If your internal team can’t keep up with compliance, don’t expect an external team to provide the structure you need.

    The Solution

    Miami-Dade County Public Schools – Pioneering AI Apprenticeships for High School Students

    Industry: Education/Technology

    Company Profile:

    Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS), specifically its Career & Technical Education Department, serves a diverse student population, preparing them for the competitive demands of the job market. The district emphasizes innovation in education, particularly through its focus on emerging technologies like artificial intelligence (AI).

    The department sought to effectively connect high school students with advanced career pathways in AI. They needed a seamless link between high school education and post-secondary apprenticeship opportunities to ensure a smooth transition for students interested in AI careers.

    Creating a coherent system that not only educates students but also seamlessly integrates them into relevant career pathways posed a significant challenge. The solution needed to cater to various stakeholders, including students, educators, and apprenticeship providers.

    The implementation process began with the integration of GoSprout’s platform into the three high schools’ existing systems. This involved setting up the interest surveys, customizing access to AI-related content, and enabling application features for the apprenticeship program. Training was provided for school counselors and teachers to facilitate the use of the platform in their curriculum and guidance processes.

    Collaboration between school administrators and Miami EdTech ensured that the transition from pre-apprenticeship to apprenticeship was smooth, with data sharing agreements in place to protect student information while allowing necessary transparency. This partnership has been instrumental in fine-tuning the program to better serve students’ needs and enhance the overall effectiveness of the career pathway framework.

    • Interest Surveys: GoSprout features tailored interest surveys that help students identify their career inclinations within AI, aligning their education with their passions.
    • Content Access: The platform provides students with easy access to relevant learning materials, supporting their journey in AI education.
    • Apprenticeship Applications: Integrated application systems allow students to apply directly to Miami EdTech’s AI apprenticeship programs. Notifications are sent automatically to Miami EdTech when a student completes pre-apprenticeship requirements and becomes eligible for the registered apprenticeship.
    • Streamlined Career Pathways: The direct linkage between pre-apprenticeship programs and registered apprenticeships simplifies the process for students to transition into specialized AI roles.
    • Enhanced Student Engagement: Interest surveys and accessible content have increased student engagement and retention by aligning educational goals with personal interests and industry demands.
    • Efficient Recruitment: Automated notifications and application tracking ease the recruitment process for Miami EdTech, ensuring a steady flow of qualified apprentices.

    Love for GoSprout:

    GoSprout has been a game changer in how we prepare our students for future careers in artificial intelligence. The platform not only supports our educational objectives but bridges the gap between school and career, providing a clear and direct pathway into the industry.

    Better Youth – Empowering System-Impacted Youth Through Media Arts Apprenticeships

    Industry: Nonprofit / Media Arts & Education

    Company Profile:

    Better Youth is a dynamic nonprofit organization based in Los Angeles, dedicated to providing access, equity, and validation for foster and system-impacted youth creatives aged 16-24. Through innovative media arts programming and mentoring, Better Youth helps bridge the digital divide and fosters creative confidence in young people.

    Better Youth faced the complex task of managing extensive pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship programs in digital storytelling, which includes project management, game design, and fine arts. They needed a robust system to streamline program management and enhance the apprenticeship experience for both coordinators and participants.

    Implementing a digital solution that could handle multiple apprenticeship tracks and accommodate the specific needs of a youth-centered program was a significant challenge. The organization required a flexible and easy-to-use system that could address the unique barriers faced by system-impacted youth.

    The implementation of GoSprout involved collaborative planning to ensure the platform adequately supported the diverse media arts apprenticeships offered by Better Youth. The initial phase focused on integrating existing data with GoSprout’s system and customizing the user interface to be engaging and accessible for young creatives. Training sessions were conducted for both staff and participants to maximize the benefits of the platform.

    Regular meetings between Better Youth’s program coordinators and GoSprout’s support team helped refine the user experience, ensuring that the platform not only met but exceeded the organization’s operational and educational goals. This ongoing partnership has been crucial in adapting to evolving needs and scaling the impact of the apprenticeships.

    • Youth-Friendly User Interface: GoSprout’s intuitive platform allows youth to easily navigate their apprenticeship tasks and resources, fostering a positive learning environment.
    • Program Management Efficiency: The platform’s comprehensive tools help coordinators track progress, manage scheduling, and facilitate communications between mentors and apprentices.
    • Personalized Support: GoSprout’s dedicated support team works closely with Better Youth to tailor the platform’s functionalities to meet their specific needs and challenges.
    • Enhanced Program Accessibility: The user-friendly interface has significantly increased program engagement and reduced drop-out rates by making it easier for youth to participate.
    • Improved Program Management: Streamlined administrative processes have enabled coordinators to spend more time on mentorship and less on paperwork.
    • Tailored Support: Customized setup and ongoing assistance from GoSprout have ensured that Better Youth can fully leverage the platform’s capabilities to benefit their unique programs.

    Love for GoSprout:

    GoSprout has transformed how we manage our apprenticeship programs. The platform’s ease of use and the personalized support we receive make it an invaluable tool in empowering our youth. It’s more than just a management system; it’s a growth enabler for our young creatives.

    I started GoSprout to ensure we take a holistic approach to the development of people. After spending the last 15 years in the workforce space, I’ve learned that the key to untapping and developing talent is addressing 100% of the person. GoSprout creates just that – Technology as a vehicle but PEOPLE at the wheel.
