The Board of Education recently awarded plaques to the participants of the Youth Apprenticehip program in appreciation of students' hard work. There were 91 students in the 2015-16 program.
Youth Apprenticeship is a rigorous one- or two-year program that combines academic and technical classroom instruction with mentored paid on-the-job training for juniors and seniors. Students are selected for the program based on their interview, application, attendance and academic records. This program gives students a chance to "try out" a potential career interest before graduation, which often times leads to a promising career.
