Youth Options/Youth Apprentice

What is Youth Apprentice?

Youth Apprenticeship (YA) integrates school-based and work-based learning to introduce students in employability and occupational skills defined by Wisconsin industries. The Youth Apprentice Program is open to juniors and seniors for a one or two year program.  This cooperative program with Madison College, the Dane County School Consortium, and an area employer, allows students to complete their high school diploma, earn college credits, and obtain paid work experience in a career pathway of their choice.

Wisconsin's Youth Options program allows public high school juniors and seniors who meet certain requirements to take postsecondary courses at a UW institution, a Wisconsin technical college, one of the state's participating private nonprofit institutions of higher education, or tribally-controlled colleges. Approved courses count toward high school graduation and college credit.
