Local School Recognized During Apprenticeship Week

St. Croix EDC helped recognize the important contributions of local schools and businesses during National Apprenticeship Week, November 13-19, 2023, with a stop at Baldwin-Woodville High School.  St. Croix EDC presented the school with a proclamation to highlight their role in hosting, training, and mentoring apprentices.

Apprenticeships are a proven model that provides training and a built-in pipeline for workers to secure solid careers across the nation and in the St. Croix Valley. They give employers the opportunity to develop and train their future workforce and apprentices earn wages while they learn.

Youth Apprenticeships integrate school-based and work-based learning to instruct students in employability and occupational skills. Registered apprenticeships are a post-secondary education, like a college or university. Registered apprentices learn only a portion of their skills in a traditional classroom and receive most of their training on-the-job working for a local employer.

For more information on prospective youth or registered apprenticeships, businesses are asked to contact their respective school district or technical college.
