Attending high school can be a stressful time period for students to decipher which colleges match with their desired career path. However, not every student decides to go that route, instead they find a trade school to align with their goals.

Fifteen Bronx River juniors and seniors got the opportunity to gain insight on a NYPD trade school in the Bronx in November. This specific trade school primarily focused on civilians educating students in areas of construction, plumbing, and computer networking. Students learned about the average salaries of each job field and a variety of benefits they would receive.
Shavon Evelyn, the senior guidance, accompanied the students on the trip. “I would like them to look at all the options that are available, since there are broad options,’’ she said. “ I want them to find a career that is fulfilling for them.”
Different people shared information about their particular programs and the benefits they could provide. A construction program manager, for example, provided an example of “non-traditional employment”
Daniel Mullins, a senior, signed up for the trip because he is passionate about construction. He said hearing about different career paths made him appreciate that college isn’t always needed in the path the success.
Darnell Francis Mozon, a senior who went on a NYPD trade school trip, shared that he is interested in a career in music and art.  “I like how they were doing all the activities and if you need help, you can ask the teachers,’’ he said.
