apprenticeship

Hi
Im a senior highschool international student, and I have a question.

In fine arts, there is something called apprenticeship. Do designers also have something like that? If there is such a thing is it possible for a highschool student to do something like that?

Dont get me wrong, Im currently a student in an Arts school(MI), not some jerkoff whos never done art seriously.

I know there are pre college programs that many universities offer, but I was just thinking that something like an apprenticeship would help me in many different ways.

Is there a internet website where I could possibly find apprenticeship opportunities?

I guess its more about finding the right person, opposed to getting a job, but anyway.

this is me
