Teen Program Enrollment

Enrollment for Fall 2019 is now open!

All Grand Rapids Public high school students are eligible to register for our tuition-free afterschool studio experiences where we encourage creative expression, connect you to teens with similar interests, and support you through your high school journey. Learn more about our studios here.

Students should complete an application (available for download below) and bring it with them to one of our two enrollment events at WMCAT:

  • August 27 – 3:30pm – 5:00pm
      • September 4 – 3:30pm – 5:00pm

Come see our studios, learn about our programs and submit or pick up an application. Placement is made on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t wait too long! Staff will contact you to confirm your studio choice or place you on a waiting list if the class is full. Make sure your contact info is accurate.

Studios begin on Monday, September 16, 2019.

Adult Career Training Program

Enrollment is now closed for the 2019-2020 Adult Career Training Program. Information Sessions for the 2020-2021 class will begin in February 2020. Please check back for more information soon. 

Eligibility for the Adult Career Training Program is now as follows:

Have a high school diploma or GED
No felony record (this is a requirement of places of employment for which we are training our students to work)
Experiencing unemployment or underemployment*
Live in Kent County

*Working part-time, multiple part-time jobs, or in a job where potential and skills are not fully utilized.

At WMCAT, we believe in designing programs that are rooted in the needs of people in the community. We recognize that the eligibility requirements for our tuition-free Adult Career Training Program can both ensure we are available to those with the highest need, and at the same time cause us to miss others who could benefit from this opportunity.

Information and Contact Form

If you have questions before Information Sessions begin in February 2020, please fill out the form and we will contact you.
