Millions given out throughout state in youth apprenticeship program

WAUSAU (WAOW) - A big announcement was made Wednesday at Northcentral Technical College in Wausau. Millions of dollars will be given to youth apprenticeship programs throughout the state.

This year, more than $2 million will be given out. The amount will be distributed to 32 different projects.

This in an increase of $400,000 from last year. Northcentral Technical College has the biggest apprenticeship program in the state.

"This is a win-win for employers because they have the opportunity to do on boarding and provides valuable work experience for the young people,"said Reggie Newson, the secretary of the department of workforce development.

NTC will get more than 2,000 of that money. That's the second highest amount going to a group in the state.
