Not long ago, there were many trade and technical colleges specifically designed for the Black Community so that at the turn of the century, they could transition from Domestic or railroad Pullman Porter work to that of someone with better hiring opportunities in the age of industry. Unfortunately today, many youth are unskilled or prepared for the workforce or to become the entrepreneurs of tomorrow. The work ethic instilled in us by some of parents and mentors was not then passed down to the generation behind us. Many reasons stand out but two in particular are that we have not simply taken youth under our wing and shown them what needs to be done. Another reason is that we have become a disposable society and would rather throw things away then repair them.
What skill or trade do you have that you need to share with the Black Youth in your community?
