    What is the Youth Apprenticeship (YA) Program?

    Developed by the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, Youth Apprenticeship (YA) is a nationally recognized program that offers high school juniors and seniors an opportunity to combine academic and technical instruction with paid, on-the-job learning through an industry-established curriculum. Upon completion, youth apprentices earn a Certificate of Occupational Proficiency in their chosen career cluster (see pages 3-4 for state-approved YA areas).

    In order to be successful in todays society, all students need to chart their personalized pathway to college, career and community success. By expanding the walls of the classroom to include business, every students personalized pathway will lead to graduation with a post-secondary plan that could lead to an industry recognized certificate and/or licensure, an associate degree or baccalaureate degree and beyond. YA students will possess the tools necessary to be successful in an evolving and ever-changing economy.

    How is YA Delivered in Madison?

    YA is administered by the Department of Workforce Development in cooperation with the Department of Public Instruction, the Wisconsin Technical College System and the University of Wisconsin System. Funding for the program is provided through state grants to local YA partnerships.

    In a collaborative effort to deliver YA to students, the Workforce Development of South Central Wisconsin oversees the program in the South Central region, including Dane County and Jefferson County. The Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce and the Madison Metropolitan School District formed a partnership to facilitate YA locally in Madison. Together, the Chamber and MMSD are committed to providing industry-relevant experiences to our Madison students, building the local workforce and positively influencing the community.
