More grants are available for the Youth Skills Training program. Youth Skills Training at the Department of Labor and Industry (YST@DLI) supports the development and implementation of paid experiential learning opportunities for students age 16 and older.

MPMA spearheaded the legislation that created this program in 2017, which includes:

  •     Local partnerships between employers and high schools.
  •     High-growth, high-demand, living-wage occupations.
  •     Industry-related classroom instruction.
  •     Paid part-time industry experience for students.
  •     Safe and meaningful opportunities for high school students.
