2023 Elma Youth Apprenticeship Signing Day

Elma High School Welcomes 8 New AJAC Apprentices

Elma High School ushered in their second cohort of AJAC Youth Apprentices during their annual Signing Day Ceremony held on May 18, 2023.

The Signing Day Ceremony signified the joint-commitment between apprentices, their hiring employers, school officials and AJAC as these young men embarked on a new journey to further their education and career in advanced manufacturing.

Apprentices signed their agreement documents in front of a packed auditorium while families, colleagues, and school administrators cheered them on. These apprentices will formally begin their structured on-the-job training as they look to complete 2,000 hours of practical hands-on work with companies who have agreed to partner with AJAC.

These students will simultaneously complete three college-level classes designed by AJAC which supplements the learning apprentices do at their job site.
