Youth Apprenticeship is a vital strategy in linking students with viable career pathways while building a stable workforce, engaging interested students through hands-on learning at local businesses. Career and Technical Education provided through school instructors complements the work experience gained at the workplaces. Employ Milwaukee is proud to receive support from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development to lead the Milwaukee County Career Plus Youth Apprenticeship Consortium. Our consortium’s steering committee is comprised of employers, educators, and industry professionals who coordinate youth apprenticeship placements and employer recruitment in the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District, the Brown Deer School District, and the Nicolet Unified School District in Glendale. Employ Milwaukee also supports other local Youth Apprenticeship Consortia as a knowledge resource to improve the area’s success with this proven strategy.
