Career motivated students!

Wisconsin's Youth Apprenticeships are a great way for you to participate in paid work and education experience in the real world in a chosen career field. 


Wisconsin's Youth Apprenticeships integrate school-based and work-based learning

to provide students in their junior and senior years with academic and occupational skills

leading to both a high school diploma and a Certificate of Occupational Proficiency in a specific industry. 

The one and two-year apprenticeships prepare students for a number of

post-secondary options:

~ Enter the workforce directly from high school

~ Enter a registered apprenticeship 

~ Enroll in a technical college or a university in an
occupationally related degree program. 


How do you apply?

Each student works in partnership with an employer-identified mentor, specialized classroom instructor and high school apprenticeship coordinator to receive the best skills and knowledge possible. The apprenticeship requires that students work a minimum of 450 hours to complete a one-year apprenticeship and 900 hours to complete a two-year program. 


Upon successful completion of the apprenticeship, students are awarded a Certificate of Occupational Proficiency from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development.  Graduates may be eligible to receive advanced standing and/or transcripted credit at a local technical college or credit toward the admission requirements for the University of Wisconsin system (in selected programs).
