Everyone is not going to college. Might not have the means or time to do so. But there are other ways to learn trades, skills, crafts, etc….A few ways:
*Hook up with an older person in the community that has mastered a certain trade, craft, skill. Try to get them to take the young person under their wings. Mentorship/Apprentceship.
*Buy books for the young people so they can read up on trades, crafts, skills (How-to books). Something they might be interested in. Something they like or lean toward.
*Take the young people to craft & hobby stores or take them to workshops on trades.
We have to take an active approach for the development of our young people.
* Get them use to reading articles & magazines in various trades and things they might be interested in.
A good Plumber, Clothing Designer, Carpenter, Mechanic, Graphic Artist, Audio Engineer, Tile Layer, Barber, AC & Heating Repair, Hairdresser, Brick Mason, etc…has great value in our communities.
