The Catawba Regional Youth Apprenticeship Council (CRYAC) is a community coalition dedicated to establishing and promoting apprenticeship opportunities in Chester, Lancaster and York Counties. Apprenticeships help students earn income while also obtaining high school and/or college credit. Through a partnership with Apprenticeship Carolina, local companies, community organizations, and economic development offices, a workforce pipeline of highly skilled employees will be established for our region.
