What did you love about YA?
The best experience I had as a Marketing Youth Apprentice was managing and organizing a career exploration event called FutureQuest. Within this experience I had the ability to grow my professional skills and knowledge at my own pace, while also learning many new significant life skills. In addition, the thing that I loved most about my job was how I was able to see my hard work pay off throughout the course of my Youth Apprenticeship.
How did YA influence your plans after high school?
The Youth Apprenticeship Program helped me better understand the future career I planned to go into, while also helping me get ahead in my chosen career path. I felt much more prepared heading into college and my future career because of the YA Program.
What do you want others to know about YA?
The YA Program may seem challenging and unnecessary from the outside, when in reality it is one of the best choices you can make in high school. Not only do you learn valueable life skills and experiences related to the career of your choice, you also get paid to do it! I believe every students should take part in the YA program, because it provides a one of kind experience that no high school class can replicate.
