Get paid to earn while you learning new skills

March 15, 2013

Did you know students who have a job in the trades have a unique opportunity to not only get paid while learning a skill, but they can also get up to 16 credits towards graduation? For each 120 hours of paid work (ex: carpenter, cook, baker, electrician, hardwood floor-layer, mechanic, landscaper…) they will get 4 credits of Secondary School Apprenticeship (SSA). Once they have earned these four classes and worked 900 hours by December 31 after their June graduation, they can apply for a $1,000 scholarship.
• Students: If you are presently have a trades job, see your counselor and get yourself signed up for this great opportunity
• Parents/Employers: If you are in a position to potentially hire a young student apprentice and would like more information, please feel free to contact Mr. Doug MacLean (778-686-1897) to discuss all the benefits of this program for your company
