SD8 Youth Trades is School District 8’s program dedicated to supporting students who are interested in a career path that starts in the Trades. Youth Trades introduces students to the world of technical trades, helps them figure out what path they would like to pursue, and supports them in their transition to technical training and entering a career in the trades.

SD8’s Youth Trades Mission is to help students find a rewarding and reliable career the incorporates their strengths.
