With today's high unemployment rate there are so many people out of work, but it’s especially bad for kids aged 18 – 24. In April 2012, statistics show that unemployment for kids aged 18-24 is over 45%, which is the highest it's been since the Great Depression! To make matters worse, college tuition is at an all-time high and, over the past few years, has risen approximately 25% with talks of going even higher and offering less academic scholarships!
That, coupled with the fact that the average household income in America is not doing so great and the result will be even more kids looking for work and direction after they graduate and enter the real world.
Unfortunately, not all high schools teach our kids everything they need to be able to thrive, or even survive, in the real world and when they graduate, they become totally lost and have no idea where to begin.
Imagine being a kid getting ready to graduate in a couple months and, if college is not in your future, having to find a job in today’s economy. You would be competing against people that have experience in the job force as well as many degreed people that are fighting for the same job, which makes your chances even smaller of landing a good job, let alone a career. It doesn’t take long for kids in this age group to become extremely discouraged and give up and this is only going to get worse if something isn’t done.
Many kids may have the opportunity to go to college and know exactly what career they want, but a huge percentage of high school graduates get their diploma and then have no idea what they want to do in life and have no idea where to even begin. These kids wander aimlessly and feel lost and have a very tough time even finding a manual labor job and again, become very discouraged. They need help and need to learn a skill of some sort to give themselves an advantage and at least give them a start and a fighting chance.
The proper mindset, guidance, training, and especially support will help them determine what their interests and strengths may be, and will make a huge impact on them and give them an exact roadmap of where to begin and what the steps are to get them started towards being independent.
