Meet Josh. He's a GPS student.

Posted: 10-14-16

Josh enrolled in GPS Education Partners through Whitnall High School because he was struggling at school and wanted more for himself. In the program, he's experienced apprenticeship pathways at Zero Zone, A.S. Pindel and Lakeside Manufacturing.   

"It kind of made me feel proud of myself," he said. 

At graduation, Josh explained that he gets to bring real skills and experiences to future job opportunities because he knows how to be part of a team and operate machines other high schoolers wouldn't know about -- like the CNC and drill press. 

Update: Josh graduated in June, 2017, and was hired by one of our business partners (Lakeside Manufacturing). He has also been accepted by Milwaukee Area Technical College and will be studying welding. Congratulations, Josh!
