Youth Apprenticeship (YA) integrates school-based and work-based learning to instruct students in employability and occupational skills defined by Wisconsin industries. Local programs provide training based on state-wide youth apprenticeship curriculum guidelines, endorsed by business and industry. Students are instructed by qualified teachers and skilled worksite mentors. Students are simultaneously enrolled in academic classes to meet high school graduation requirements, in a youth apprenticeship related instruction class, and are employed by a participating employer under the supervision of a skilled mentor ("Become a Youth Apprentice." Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development Home, 2022, https://dwd.wisconsin.gov/apprenticeship/ya-applicants.htm).
The Division of Education is in partnership with local high schools across the service area to offer the Youth Apprenticeship (YA) program. Please connect with Barbara Agen
