Wisconsin's Youth Apprenticeship program is a part of a statewide School-to-Work initiative. It is designed for high school students who want hands on learning in an occupational area at a worksite along with classroom instruction.

This one or two year elective program combines academic and technical instruction with mentored on-the-job learning.
