WORK BASED LEARNING
The Youth Apprenticeship program is a type of work experience offered at ETHS. YA positions are paid position and students also earn credit while on the job. Students in this program must be taking a class associated with their apprenticeship placement and are required to complete more hours. Each student in the program must be able to complete a skills checklist at the end of the program. Students who successfully complete their program will be given a certificate of completion. There are both one year and two year YA certificate programs. Select the link below for more information on YA programs.
