Serving both the Bruce-Grey Catholic District School Board and the Bluewater District School Board (BWDSB) the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) is a secondary school cooperative education program that allows students to participate in an apprenticeship occupation while working towards their Ontario Secondary School Diploma.

Senior secondary students enrolled in a cooperative education course make the connection between what happens in the classroom and what happens in the workplace. It provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate curriculum expectations in an authentic “real life” situation.

Interested students must:

  • have completed at least 16 high school credits prior to OYAP,
  • be at least 16 years of age,
  • have acceptable attendance records,
  • be responsible for their own transportation to and from the placement worksite(s), and
  • be enrolled in school full-time during the program,
  • be working towards the completion of all OSSD requirements.
