Program Support Requested
We understand the importance of your involvement, and request your commitment and agreement to support in the following ways:
Remind the student to regularly check their email and voicemail for communication from the YA Coordinator and/or potential employers.
Encourage the student to prepare and dress appropriately for interview requests. Resources are available on our website YAWISCONSIN.org or your student can also work directly with their YA Coordinator.
Reinforce with the student that they are the future employee and that it is not appropriate nor the responsibility of you as their parents/guardian to make phone calls or send emails on their behalf. Employers are far more impressed when the students are advocating for themselves and demonstrating initiative along the professional journey.
Prompt your student to direct questions, employment leads or updates regarding their employment status with their YA Coordinator.
Celebrate and encourage them along the way.
Is there any additional information you feel we should know to better support the student in the Youth Apprenticeship program?
