Opportunities, Inc. is proud to have two students graduate from their Youth Apprenticeship Program in Oconomowoc this past May. This program integrates school-based and work-based learning to educate students in employability and occupational skills defined by Wisconsin industries.
Students attend classes on-site in a classroom setting and also gain hands-on experience in a production workforce. Upon successful completion, they earn a high school diploma from their home district, as well as, a Wisconsin Manufacturing Certificate.
Joe Brown from Palymra-Eagle High School and Warren Stenglein, Cory Cridelich, Alex Ertl and Troy Young from the Oconomowoc High School successfully completed the program. The graduates are already well on there way in taking their next step. Warren, Joe and Troy are actively job searching in the Waukesha County. Joe is also planning to attend WCTC in the fall for law enforcement. Alex is working at a local KFC and will be taking classes through the University of Phoenix for business and accounting. Cory is employed at Goodwill and has applied for the law enforcement program at WCTC.
