Raymond’s Commitment To Stem Education Resonates In Youth Apprenticeship Program

For more than 25 years, the Youth Apprenticeship Program has been an integral part of The Raymond Corporation’s commitment to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education, as well as played a large role in building the workforce of the future. Working with high schools throughout the Southern Tier of New York area, this program provides a hands-on, experiential approach to learning for junior and senior high school students. Coordinated through the Broome-Tioga Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES), apprentices spend two years contributing to the Youth Apprenticeship Program at Raymond headquarters in Greene, New York. Students learn more about their areas of interest, as well as being introduced to a variety of other disciplines, which can include engineering, finance and manufacturing.
