Twiggs County High Needs Business Help for Youth Program | Arts & Culture
Twiggs County High School needs employers to employ high school juniors (11th graders) and seniors (12th graders) through its Youth Apprenticeship Program.
Youth Apprenticeship is a structured combination of school-based and work-based learning. Through a coordinated effort involving business and industry, Youth Apprenticeship addresses the dual role of preparing students for the world of work and providing Georgia with a highly skilled, technologically competitive workforce.
The Youth Apprenticeship program benefits students by offering them school-based and work-based learning opportunities that are related to students’ career interest areas. Through Youth Apprenticeship, students are able to:
- Earn wages while learning from skilled professionals
- Increase career options and future employability
- Strengthen academic skills
- Experience the connection between education and real-life work skills
Youth Apprenticeship enables employers to play an active role in shaping the quality of these students. Through Youth Apprenticeship, employers are able to:
- Increase skill levels of potential workers
- Work with educators to develop curriculum based on industry standards
- Recruit and screen potential employees
- Reduce turnover of entry-level employees though the hiring of Youth Apprenticeship graduates
If you are interested in participating in the Youth Apprenticeship Program to help students in Twiggs County, please contact Mr. Mozell Smith, Jr. at (478) 945-3112 (Ext) 5140.
It is the policy of the Twiggs County Public School System to offer students the opportunity to participate in appropriate programs and activities without regard to color, creed, national origin, handicap or sex.
