Alaina Holycross

“My YA experience has been awesome! I am learning so much. I’m excited to begin my nursing assistant classes at LTC and how what I will learn as a CNA will impact my current job and help me become a CNA. As a CNA, I will be able to perform some nursing tasks and interact as a member of a healthcare team at the Sheboygan Senior Community. I think it’s truly amazing that I can go from being a Unit Assistant to a CNA in the YA program.”

Joshua Kautzer

“My involvement with YA has been incredibly impactful because I have been able to collaborate with lots of different people and have had the opportunity to shadow varying occupations in the company. This has allowed me to better understand a corporate atmosphere.”
