Wisconsin leading charge in bridging skills gap

When it comes to bridging the skills gap in manufacturing, the State of Wisconsin is putting its money where its mouth is.

According to a press release from Gov. Scott Walker’s office, the state has awarded $3.9 million in Youth Apprenticeship grants to Wisconsin organizations to help thousands of high school juniors and seniors get instruction and on-the-job training in manufacturing and other areas.

“Wisconsin’s nationally-recognized Youth Apprenticeship program helps employers across the state address the skills gap and remains a key talent development strategy,” said Governor Walker in a press release. “Increased grant funding for the upcoming school year ensures more Wisconsin high school students will become youth apprentices and graduate with the high-demand job skills and industry certification required by our businesses.”

Besides manufacturing, participating students can choose to receive training and education in Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources; Architecture and Construction; Art, Audio/Visual Technology and Communications; Finance; Health Science; Hospitality and Tourism; Information Technology; Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics; Transportation, Distribution and Logistics; and Marketing.
