About

The Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) is a school-to-work transition program offered through Ontario secondary schools. Full-time students in Grades 11 and 12 earn cooperative education credits through work placements in skilled trades.

OYAP is Co-Op and it is offered at every secondary school in Ontario for students who wish to explore a career in Skilled Trades and Technology. If you are a full-time high school student entering Grade 11 and are at least 16 years old, you can work towards a career in the skilled trades by participating in OYAP.

To learn more about OYAP, contact your local high school guidance counsellor, your co-op education teacher or the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program Coordinator for your school board.
