Wisconsin's Youth Apprenticeship Program in printing (YAP) features the following elements: competency-based curriculum and assessment systems; 2-year, part-time paid training and work experiences at one or more printing companies; work-based mentoring; technical college instruction in printing technology and some academic courses; integrated academic and vocational instruction; and collaborative school and industry oversight. The YAP was subjected to a 2-year evaluation of its short- and long-term effects. The evaluation compared the experiences of the following groups at five YAP sites: all graduating YAP seniors; all printing co-op seniors; all seniors who had been or were currently enrolled in at least one printing-related course; and students in one subject class who were not enrolled in a college preparation or vocational program. The following were among the data collection activities conducted: interviews with samples of students, graduates, employers, principals, and program coordinators; reviews of student records; and site visits. Compared with their peers, YAP graduates had maintained lower rates of absenteeism while in school and were more likely to show a strong interest in the printing industry and long-term career plans and more likely to have concrete long-term educational plans. The YAP also provided multiple benefits for participating schools and employers. (Forty-nine tables/figures are included. Four supplementary tables are appended.) (MN)
