"Youth Apprenticeship has inspired me to stay in the STEM career cluster. Working in a factory setting has made me realize how much that atmosphere appeals to me," says Emily Dreger a second year Youth Apprenticeship student working in Welding at Amerequip. "It has reinforced my interest in STEM areas and broadened my knowledge on all of the different possible careers I could be involved in. Personally, it turned out to be one of my greatest experiences and I cannot picture my life without the Youth Apprenticeship Program"
Youth apprenticeships offer students the opportunity to explore future careers while they are still in high school and get paid for their time working at area employers. Youth Apprenticeship offers one- and two-year programs. Students also receive elective credit for the YA program at their high school. At the Information Night students and parents will hear from current youth apprentice students, talk with employers and receive application information. No registration is necessary.
