    YA Alumni SPOTLIGHT OF THE MONTH Trevor Thomas Waunakee Class Of 2011 Company: Ketter Komputers Program: Information Technology What did you love about YA? My experience was very special, as I was able to work for a small business owned by a former YA! I really enjoyed having access to real world situations that equipped me with skills I wouldn't have had until later in my career. I loved working in the computer shop and going out to customers and solving their technology problems. How did YA influence your plans after high school? Before I entered YA, I wasn’t certain on my post high school path. The skills and experiences I gained through the program inspired me to start my own business after high school. After a few years I owned multiple companies and was continuing to grow. I would eventually make a profitable exit from those businesses, and transition back into employment to continue developing and gaining new skills. Today I am the District Sales Manager for an industrial manufacturing company and am responsible for the midwestern United States. Had I not entered the program and been afforded the opportunity to start a career while in high school, I might still be experimenting to find what I enjoy and what works for me. What do you want others to know about YA? You never want to stop learning. One of the greatest things about the YA program is it gives you access to knowledge and experiences that are otherwise typically off limits to students. In some ways it's like a trial or sneak peek into a career. This program allowed me to better understand what I enjoyed about the working world, how to be successful in the office and not just the classroom, and was an excellent foundation for my entire career!

  • Celia Bartels

    Celia Bartels Verona Class Of 2023 Company: Genetic Visions Program: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math What did you love about YA? My job and the YA program in general not only taught me so much about the biotech field, but it also connected me to teachers, mentors, and peers that I know I can continue learning from and leaning on for support for the rest of my life. I made many lasting friendships and I know my mentors will be there for me both in the field and in life. How did YA influence your plans after high school? The YA program was a great opportunity to try out a real job in the field before I solidified my post-high school plans. The program eased many anxieties that I would have had in spending time and money studying something without experiencing it first. What do you want others to know about YA? The YA program not only teaches students technical skills necessary for their careers, but it builds many soft skills such as exploring new things, connecting with peers and mentors, and building confidence. The program helps students learn that they are capable of big things even at a young age.
