INFORMATION FOR PARENTS & STUDENTS
Students gain valuable life skills.
Apprenticeships are employer-driven which means that the employer ultimately decides who to hire and who to let go. Employers are investing in your students when they hire them with their own business’ assets. This is an opportunity for your student to grow in their ability to gain responsibility in the workplace. The goal of the Saint Joseph School District is educating each child for success. This program values community partnership as a means to provide students with personal and professional growth opportunities.
