Grinnell's Apprenticeship Program adapts the traditional apprenticeship model to suit the unique characteristics of a liberal arts education and the realities of small town development through a unique, network-based approach. The program:

-        pairs student apprentices with Grinnell township organizations where they work one-on-one with the executive management at one of several host organizations

-        encompasses a range of work, from economic development to art education

-        puts apprentices in direct contact with a few of Grinnell's most active organizations in the community

-        gives apprentices a support group in which to share professional experiences in weekly lunch meetings that also increase collaboration between agencies
