These days, many students are embarking on alternative paths after high school from gap years volunteering abroad to two-year community colleges and trade schools. Community colleges and trade schools can offer many benefits such as lower tuition with excellent educational opportunities in different majors as well as specific training in vocational programs. Additionally, two-year programs can easily transfer to four-year programs later, when you are more certain on the major/area of study you wish to pursue.
