Monday, July 24, 2017  
Share |

The 2017 Legislature passed a law, spearheaded by the MPMA, to enable more high school students to participate in skills-based training at employer sites.

Please join your fellow MPMA members to learn more about plans for the new Youth Skills Training Program, and how employers can work with schools and others to build local programs, and access support and funding. 

WHEN: Tuesday, August 15, 2017, 10:00  – 11:30 a.m.

WHERE: Department of Labor & Industry, 443 Lafayette Road, St Paul MN 55101

WHAT Will I Learn? An overview of the new legislation and the timeline for implementation and pilot funding.  Feedback will be taken on how DLI can best support employer efforts to offer skills training to students.

The new Youth Skills Training Program at DLI will support locally-based programs for “student learners,” age 16 and older, participating in paid work experiences, including internships, apprenticeships, and other programs where they receive on-the-job training directly from employers.

Who Should Attend?

  • Employers interested in offering skills training to youth.
  • Educators planning new skills programs or interested in expanding existing programs.
  • Local partners that can help facilitate, coordinate, and connect interested students with interested businesses.
