Youth Co-op

Cooperative Education is a work based learning opportunity that links classroom instruction in Technology Education, Marketing Education, Family and Consumer Education, and Business and Information Technology Education with “real world” work experience in related occupations. The Co-op program provides on the job training and evaluation through carefully planned and supervised experiences that develop, improve, and/or refine occupational competencies required for a given career objective. These competencies include attitudes, skills, and knowledge.


The youth co-op program through Inspire Sheboygan County is open to students ages 16-18 who are looking to explore a variety of career fields including manufacturing, engineering, automotive, healthcare, finance, business management and entrepreneurship. The youth co-op experience is a minimum of 75 hours within an academic quarter or summer. Students are placed in youth co-op roles through an application and interview process. Students are paid an hourly wage based on industry standards and receive ½ credit upon successful completion of the youth co-op. The co-op is pass/fail and does not receive a grade. Students must also be enrolled in a related course.
