Emanuel County Youth Apprenticeship Program highlighted YardMaster as the business of the month for April. YardMaster is an integral part of the Youth Apprenticeship Program in Emanuel County. Frank and Teah Canady, owners, are very helpful and enthusiastic with the students they are training for the working world.
Bob Bostwick, store manager, says he enjoys working with the students. He believes it keeps him young. He also stated that these students are very helpful and are learning a great deal about all aspects of the business. Students employed are C.G. Breadlove and Kala Canady.
CG Breadlove, ECI senior, is a first year YAP student. After graduation he plans to attend Swainsboro Technical College and major in Forestry. CG believes that being able to work during school hours helped him not only to pay his bills but learn to manage his money. It also has helped him decide what he wanted to do in life as a career.
Kala Canady, a first year Youth Apprenticeship student, is a junior at Swainsboro High School. Kala says that attending school, working part-time and playing sports makes life very stressful. Since she has been in YAP and is able to work during school hours, she believes it has made her life less stressful and more productive by using her time more efficiently. After high school, Kala plans to attend the University of Georgia and major in Landscape Architecture.
