TSMA Luncheon Meeting in Fergus Falls: Explore Youth Skills Training Program and Tour Productive Alternatives
TOPIC: Youth Skills Training Program
The Youth Skills Training (YST) Program encourages, promotes and supports the development of local partnerships between schools, employers and community organizations. These local partnerships provide students with related classroom instruction, safety training, industry-recognized credentials and paid work experience in high-growth and high-demand occupations in the industries of advanced manufacturing, agriculture, automotive, health care and information technology. Successful applicants will demonstrate the ability to achieve these objectives through various means including outreach, education, training and supportive services for students.
