Coleman Students In Youth Apprenticeship Program
Issue Date: July 26, 2013
Youth Apprenticeship students at Coleman High School held summer jobs. The program provides students with specific occupational skills, as well as valuable employability skills, interpersonal skills, and a general knowledge of the world of work. The program integrates school-based and work-based learning to instruct students in skills as defined by Wisconsin industries and the Department of Workforce Development. Coleman High School is part of a local consortium including Oconto, Oconto Falls, and Wausaukee high schools. The local consortium provides training based on statewide youth apprenticeship curriculum guidelines, endorsed by business and industry. Students are instructed by qualified teachers and skilled worksite mentors. Upon successful completion of the program students receive a State Skill Certificate that will be valuable when entering the workforce, applying for a registered apprenticeship position, or enrolling in a technical college or four-year university. Coleman students worked on apprenticeships in agriculture, food, and natural resources; health science; hospitality, lodging, and tourism; and manufacturing. This is made possible with the help of Jandt Produce, Hoffmans Happy Holsteins, Zeitler Enterprises, B&D Dairy, D&L Rusch Dairy, Newcare Residence, Nestegg Marine, Reisterer & Schnell Inc., and Burger King.
