    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!

  • Manufacturing | Danecountyconsortium

    Manufacturing Back to all programs Manufacturing is the engine that drives American prosperity. Often the perception is that the heyday of U.S. manufacturing is in the past. Nothing could be further from the truth! Wisconsin is tied as the number one manufacturer in the United States and employs 16% of our labor force. ​ Manufacturing establishments engage in the mechanical, physical, or chemical transformation of materials, substances, or components into new products. Furthermore, all manufacturing workers need to possess flexibility of skills in order to respond to rapidly changing industry demands. Therefore, the Manufacturing YA program was structured to require industry-wide foundational skills and industry-specific technical skills. ​ STUDENT TESTIMONIAL ​ ​ “The Youth Apprenticeship Program has given me two years of job experience and could end in a a job and career. My two years of job experience took place at a top-notch facility that offers the best of the best. I’ve worked with great people at EK Machine; because there are only 160 employees at the current time, it’s like one big family. Joining the program was the right choice for me and it’s going to help my future.” ​ - Keith Johnson, Class of 2016, Sun Prairie Business Partners that support Youth Apprenticeship: VIEW ALL
