Youth Apprenticeship (YA) program

Youth Apprenticeship is a two-year program for students combining classroom instruction (both high school and college) and paid on-the-job training. By participating, students gain a set of skills and abilities by learning in the classroom and work settings.

Youth Apprenticeship is a two-year commitment – students become a part of it during their junior and senior year. During those two years, students will work (and get paid for!) a minimum of 900 hours at a local business/industry, and take classes at NWTC – which will count toward their college degree.

Interested high school sophomores can pick up an application from their high school school-to-work coordinator or guidance counselor or click on the online application in the far right column on this page.
