Quantum PC’s Erin Helgeson has four good reasons why your kids should consider apprenticeships and internships. Curtis Barganz completed his apprenticeship at Quantum PC earlier this year before Caden Kacmaryanski, Trevor Ash and Weston Mann joined the team earlier this summer. Barganz turned his apprenticeship into a full-time role with the company while Kacmaryanski, Ash, and Mann all hope their time opens doors in the future. Ash and Mann will stay on through the school year as a part of the Ahnapee Youth Apprenticeship program. Helgeson says the four boys representing Sturgeon Bay, Sevastopol, and Gibraltar high schools are great examples of how getting your foot in the door can help you decide if you want to continue on a particular career path.
The Ahnapee Regional Youth Apprenticeship Consortium includes Luxemburg-Casco, Kewaunee, and all of Door County’s high schools to help provide on-the-job work experience for students by pairing them with skilled mentors.
