LakeView Technology students benefiting from statewide apprenticeship program

Program funded through the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development

The Wisconsin Youth Apprenticeship program has been an eye-opener for many high school students.

It’s allowed them to see a path to high-paying, high-demand jobs without a four-year college degree.

“There’s so many opportunities for young kids to make a lot of money and be doing stuff that they actually like to do,” said Dalton Clark, a senior at LakeView Technology Academy.

Clark is one of roughly 140 Kenosha Unified School District high school juniors and seniors participating in the Wisconsin Youth Apprenticeship. The program is partially funded through the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development.

The apprenticeships connect students with employers looking to fill high-skilled positions that largely go unfilled in industries such as transportation, building trades, information systems, and manufacturing.

Clark is pointed toward a manufacturing career in Computer Numeral Control. He is an apprentice at a Kenosha milling shop and plans on pursuing a two-year degree from Gateway Technical College.
