What is YA?

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 statewide 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.

Our Mission

Why YA?

To prepare students to be productive citizens with a clearly defined career path and to provide the necessary tools to accomplish those goals. Students will be provided with the necessary resources to be college, career, and community ready.
