January 6, 2018

A state program that gives high school students hands-on experience in a variety of career fields is “more important than ever before,” Gov. Scott Walker said during a visit on Friday to Kimberly High School.

Walker spoke with a group of students and staff at the school about the youth apprenticeship program, which provides students with the opportunity to explore a career in various industries, including construction, manufacturing and health care, among others.

The program has more than doubled in size during Walker’s tenure and now gets nearly $4 million in state funding and has spots for about 4,300 students. Kimberly High School currently has 30 students in apprenticeships in eight different career fields.
