We (Company) started a cooperation to help work with the kids that showed good mechanical ability and were probably not heading to college.  Worked well for a lot of years.  We and with a few other companies took these kids in on an apprenticeship that was thru the state and they were monitored and received a certificate after completion.  The company I retired from took in many kids and quite a few are still there.  The state was a big help most of the time.  
I could see 15+ years ago that the schools were not really working with us that well.  New teachers and guidance councilors had different ideas. 

Our community college also started a new diesel truck school too--- Not only drivers but mechanics as well---- In fact this area is screaming for diesel mechanics----

Trust me I can relate. At the course my old man ran we had to take chicken manure and mix it with sand and then shovel it by hand in the spreader. And the mix had to be right do too much manure has too much nitrogen by itself and will cook the grass. We also had a mix with sewer sludge from the local waste treatment plant we had to mix it with peat loam. On that stuff we also had to use sticks with nails to pick out used condoms no joke. Later on when I got a drivers license I did get to drive the C-60 dump to pick up the materials so that was sorta a blessing for me in those days. But even with that I still had to help in all the other processes like before

I can relate since moving to Central New York. We have farms around us, mostly corn, but you know when the manure gets spread. 🐄 💩

LOL that is why you wear knee high rubber boots and wash them in the wash pit. And trust me those old boots get hot in the even in the spring and fall. If you did not wash the insides they would stink as bad as the outsides.
