Stayton Police Cadet Program

A great way to get involved in law enforcement is to become a part of the cadet program. And, you don't have to wait until you are graduated to do so! Attached below is a brochure about the program. You will learn skills and gain experience to prepare you for a law enforcement career, and/or help you know if it is right for you. I also have information for a similar program through Marion County.

Campus Focus: IBEW (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers) Portland

This short video will tell you what it is like to become an electrical apprentice with the IBEW. Great can start working right away while training! Other trade apprenticeship programs have similar work and school structures.
