Students interested in graphic design careers may participate in graphic design apprentice programs to improve their skills. These programs will help students to learn different aspects of graphic design, including software programs, and also learn about various job opportunities. Whether you are looking to hone your basic skills or have your sights on a career in an ad agency or graphics department of a media company, an apprenticeship offers valuable experience and preparation for a future career in graphic design.

New Hampshire School-to-Work Program

The New Hampshire School-to-Work program is provided through the U.S. Department of Labor and New Hampshire Apprenticeship Council. In this program, employers work with temporary employees to prepare them for a future career in graphic design by offering them hands-on training and practical knowledge. According to the State of New Hampshire Department of Employment Security website, "This program gives students the opportunity to begin training for careers while still in high school." Apprentices may have to pay tuition for any classroom instruction associated with the job. Training may be transferable from state to state. Job-search and interview tips are also included as part of the apprenticeship training.

Street Level Apprenticeship Program

The Street Level program is a Chicago's Summer Arts Apprenticeship (SAAP) initiative, an eight-week media arts program for youth ages 14 to 19. The program starts annually in late June. The students meet four days per week for a half day of training each day. Established adult artists work as mentors and guide participants as they create work revolving around political, social and cultural issues. All participants also collaborate, create and present a group exhibition. In addition to in-class learning and mentoring sessions, participants also benefit from the use of the media lab time and field trips.
