Cybersecurity Youth Apprenticeship Initiative (CYAI) is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Employment and Training Administration (ETA) Office of Apprenticeship (OA). The initiative prioritizes registered apprenticeship as an innovative, mutually beneficial workforce solution for both the business and for the apprentice. Apprentices in CYAI are youth aged 16-21.
As a workforce intermediary, CYAI offers curriculum aligned with entry level work around career readiness, professionalism and emotional intelligence. In addition, apprentices receive training focused on the skills and credentials needed to grow in the cybersecurity industry. CYAI raises the profile of its apprentices by sponsoring or co-sponsoring cybersecurity competitions that bring together teams of technicians, students, mentors, learners, and information technology professionals.
Secure a spot for the eligible student(s) in your household and ensure they will have the skills they need to thrive in an exciting career. CYAI is completely free for students and their families. Contact us at CYAI2024@icf.com with questions and enroll your students today!
