Join us for an overview and discussion on youth apprenticeships and why this program could be a part of your talent acquisition strategy. We’ll take a closer look at how this statewide initiative is providing ROI for local employers – and how you can get involved.
Our partners at Kenosha Unified School District (KUSD) are preparing high school juniors and seniors for a one- or two-year apprenticeship that provides students the academic and technical skill sets needed for local industry. But they need your support. Youth apprentice students are now seeking placement at local businesses for the 2021-22 school year in one of 11 program areas — from health sciences and IT, to construction, manufacturing, and logistics. (Find a complete list of youth apprenticeship program areas.)

• Best practices for incorporating work-based opportunities for youth
•Key elements of Wisconsin’s youth apprenticeship program, including employer responsibilities, WI employment of minor laws, and timeframe
