College vs. Trades

While college is a good option for some people, it isn't for everyone — and not going to a four-year college doesn't mean you can't have a meaningful and well-paying career. More people than ever before have a college degree, but a four-year program isn't the only way to be successful.  

Too often, students who do well in high school are typically steered toward college and degree related careers and away from trade school and careers in the trades.   But the truth is you need smarts—and so much more—for careers in the trades, not just for college.

  As the saying goes, “Apprenticeship, the original four-year degree”.  Ben Franklin and Paul Revere were apprentices back in their days.
