School-To-Registered-Apprenticeship (STRA) Program

This program gives high school students the opportunity to get long-term career and occupational education and training both in the classroom and at a job site. Employers work with school counselors, instructors and a STRA Program coordinator to give students the chance to interview for specific job openings that are available. Paid work-based training begins while the student is in high school and continues with guaranteed full-time employment after graduation and employer-paid college instruction.

Michigan Department of Career Development: Michigan's Career Preparation System emphasizes the need for students to get career and occupational information, participate in career exploration activities and investigate career education, training and employment options.
