lincoln high school Youth apprenticeship
Get PAID to learn!
Youth Apprenticeship is a 1 or 2-year program that gives juniors and seniors the chance to explore a career area of interest. Students spend part of their school day doing real-life, hands-on, PAID learning under the guidance of a local business mentor.
In this program, students gain the skills and experiences to compete for high-paying, highly-skilled jobs. As paid employees of a local business partner, students have the same type of work, projects, and responsibilities as other employees in their career field.
YA students also have the opportunity to earn free college credits and workplace certifications!
"The value of the YA program for me is being able to work in my field of interest, getting experience, and then having a head start for whatever comes after I graduate. If you are unsure about YA, I would say try it! You get valuable work experience in whatever you are interested in and you get paid, all during school hours."
-Sawyer Krall, YA Student
"My favorite part of the Youth Apprenticeship program is that I get the opportunity for real-life experiences outside of the classroom. The most rewarding part of my job is knowing that I've been a part of my patient's recovery!"
-Lauren Francl, YA student
