You may think that apprenticeship and higher education are opposites – choose one or the other. But not so! Depending on your chosen field, a college education may be necessary, and that doesn’t leave mentorship out of it.
Mentorship can happen concurrently with college studies, as it has for decades in fields such as law, medicine, and politics. With some students, mentorship will provide all the training a young person needs to be prepared; with others, a college degree may be necessary.
