The teens and 20’s are the best time to build the foundation that will be needed for a successful life.These are not the years to waste. Teenagers need to be mentored and learning practical skills. They should get internships, shadow careers, and volunteer to work on projects for free. Have them take every opportunity (especially while they have limited responsibilities) to be in their fields of interest and learning hands-on skills. Teach them they don’t need to wait to have a “real job” to work their craft.
