UBCO launches Arts Career Apprenticeship Program

January 7, 2021
The University of British Columbia Okanagan has started an Arts Career Apprenticeship Program that will allow graduates from arts, humanities, or social sciences programs to complete paid apprenticeships. Students will have the chance to contribute to a local organization or business while gaining networking opportunities and receiving mentorship. “The time after graduation can be an exciting but also stressful [time] for students as they navigate the transition from university to their first jobs,” says Ananya Mukherjee Reed, UBCO provost and VP academic. “This program is designed to bring local businesses into that transition process, and provide real-world experience to help jumpstart their careers and to help foster talent right here in the Okanagan.” UBC (BC)
