Trade schools for late blooming young adults are an excellent choice when college is not an option. An alarming number of young adults are struggling to "launch" into adulthood. They may, or may not, finish high school, and there is no desire to attend college. At The Crossroads specializes in coaching the late bloomer to explore a trade and to enroll into a trade school.
Too many young adults struggle to find a job, or can't keep a job. These troubled young adults sleep until the afternoon, stay up all night, and hang out with their old friends who are doing the same thing. If you are a parent of a struggling young adult you might identify with our description of the "late bloomer" young adult.
Young adults who are stuck in the transitional phase need a little help sometimes; they need some "independent life skills" coaching to get over the hump. And, you know by now they won't allow you to coach them any longer. At this point, they have not chosen, or simply can't, assume the autonomy and responsibilities of adulthood without professional support.
Too many parents in the US are dealing with struggling young adults who are failing to launch and need therapeutic intervention to transition into the next phase of life. If this is the case with your late bloomer, you know that they need a career goal to work toward.
Without the life skills necessary to maneuver and navigate through the responsibilities of adulthood (school or employment) your young adult is literally stuck. Let us help you and your adult child.
We have found that "Trade School" and "trade training" are a catalyst to develop internal drivers and motivators, propelling a young person through the "transition" and land solidly into adulthood.
When struggling young adults are able to secure a foundation through the initial stages of our program, and college is not in their future, then a trade school training program is the best option.
