Taking a Different Route

Alternatives to College


College isn’t for everyone, and that’s completely okay. Here are some alternatives for those who aren’t sure they want to go back to school in the fall.


  1.  Volunteer Service openings are an incredible way to gain different abilities and prepare for jobs while at the same time finding what you’re energetic about. Setting aside some time to volunteer can benefit your community and yourself.
