DANE COUNTY (WKOW) -- It's hard to decide what you want to be when you grow up. But Wednesday it might get a little easier for high schoolers and their parents.
There's a chance to learn more about youth apprenticeships in Dane County.
Whether it's working as a mechanic, in the health care field or in hundreds of other jobs, the Dane County School Consortium along with the Wisconsin Youth Apprenticeship program opens doors for juniors and seniors in our area each year.
"We just want to help students get that experience while getting their academics and finding a way to connect those. So the more that students can do on that kind of career planning effort, the better off they're going to be for the long term," said Josh Fassl, the director of the Dane County School Consortium.
The cool part, these are all paid apprenticeships!
If you're interested in learning more about the program, there are two upcoming informational meetings for students and their parents.
- February 24, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
- March 8, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
