Youth Apprenticeship Recognition Program (Submitted by Mrs. Gartley)

Dane County School-to-Career Coordinators, Youth Apprenticeship students and their families, work-place mentors, and Career Pathway teachers came together last month at McFarland High School to recognize the contributions each had made through the Youth Apprenticeship program in advancing students' readiness to enter college and/or join the workforce.

Belleville’s Youth Apprenticeship program participation has grown from three students this year to seven starting this summer and into the fall. Interested students may still contact Mrs. Gartley, School-to-Career Coordinator, for more information about Youth Apprenticeship and Work Experience options for next school year.
