What is the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program?
You have so many options
Child and youth worker, automotive service technician, welder, and general carpenter are only a few examples of apprenticeship trades available to you.
Get a jump start
You can jump start your career by counting your co-op/OYAP hours towards your apprenticeship! Visit student services or the cooperative education teacher in your school to learn more!
There’s a skilled trade for everyone
OYAP allows you to explore and find the right career for you. And if you discover you want to change direction you can, because many skills are transferable.
Achieve excellence through hands-on learning
Hands-on learning activates more parts of the brain and is great for retention. The apprenticeship pathway combines in-class and on-the-job training opportunities to maximize learning and skill development.
