Wisconsin’s Youth Apprenticeship program at Blackhawk Technical College is a one- or two-year career pathways exploration opportunity designed specifically for high school juniors and seniors. It combines engaging classroom lessons with real on-the-job training. And students actually earn a paycheck while exploring an exciting career and gaining valuable skills.
Through the Rock County and Green County School-to-Work Partnership, there are 11 different program areas for youth apprentices to choose from including Health Science, Manufacturing, Arts, A/V Technology and Communications, Finance and more.
