Youth Apprenticeship (YA) is a highly successful work-based learning program in which employers hire high school juniors or seniors for a one or two-year apprenticeship. Students "earn and learn" during their apprenticeship, while the student continues toward high school graduation. All students take courses related to the profession as a way of enhancing what is being learned within business and industry.
