FLYAP Signing Day for East High School

Rochester – The Finger Lakes Youth Apprenticeship Program (FLYAP) held its annual “Signing Day” at East High School in Rochester. Twenty students from the school signed up for paid co-ops or job shadows at companies in the city of Rochester and surrounding areas.

This is the third straight year that East High School has participated in the Finger Lakes Youth Apprenticeship Program. In addition to their on-the-job experience, some students qualify for dual enrollment classes at Monroe Community College and all FLYAP participants developed soft skills through the program’s “Matching Day” interviews.

“Team FLYAP is again proud to partner with East High School on another successful year,” said Rich Turner, FLYAP Program Director. “Each year, more students from East are gaining valuable on-the-job experience at local manufacturing companies which will prepare them for the workforce and higher education after graduation.”

The Rochester Technology and Manufacturing Association (RTMA) created FLYAP in partnership with Monroe Community College to introduce high school students to careers in manufacturing. Since its inception, the program has connected more than 750 students to paid co-ops and/or job shadows at nearly 150 companies throughout the greater Rochester and Finger Lakes region.

The Finger Lakes Youth Apprenticeship Program is the first program of its kind in New York State. For more information, you can visit, call (585) 510-4278 or email
