Learning while earning growing across the State, especially in Amery!

The Youth Apprenticeship (YA) Program is seeing record shattering numbers in Wisconsin. Amery Schools have a long history with YA, a strong program and large numbers. Above YA advisor Emily Larson (far right) next to: Adelle Green of Amery Theater and Coffee Bar, YA student Tyler Burns, Amanda Whiting of Amery Theater and Coffee Bar and Linnae Seaman (she and her mother Edith Paulson were both staff memebrs at Amery and supporters of the program).   

Many young people find themselves more prepared to enter the working world because of participation in Youth Apprenticeship (YA), a program that is taking off in the state, but especially in Amery.

The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD) announced record participation in its YA programs, with 8,357 high-school juniors and seniors pursuing paid, on-the-job training in fields, including manufacturing, health, science, agriculture and more. This record number represents 30% more youth apprentices than the 2021-2022 school year.
