Does anyone know of any vocational programs for older teen boys? I am trying to help find some options for the son of a family friend who for various reasons has not been able to finish high school. He is a kind, soft spoken boy, and is able to learn, but traditional classrooms and academics are not the path for him currently.

I am certain that he could do very well in a hands on profession, and learning a skill/trade would do wonders for his self esteem.

Any information/direction would be so appreciated....

I'm not not whether it still exists, but there is/was a small yeshiva in Lancaster, Pennsylvania focusing on learning building trades. It is/was geared to post high school boys.

Are you looking at any particular geographical area, or where anywhere in the world do?

LOL
Sorry!!! it was an oversight... I need something in Brooklyn (oh boy, now I am really going to get it... here I am just feeding the stereotype of us Brooklynites assuming we are the center of the universe!)

Are you sure those were yeshiva bochors and not Amish kids? Confused

I know a few HS boys who are good hashkafically, nice kids, not so academic, would be such a great idea for them if its done in a good sviva.

if no such a program, who is picking up the glove?

it takes a caring parent/ friend to create a new reality.

we all know some special people who started good program and benefited generations!

That is a very sweet thought... I just don't think I could quite pull it off at this point tho.... Sad

I don't know much about it, but check out Mesivta Shaare Arazim, which is run by Rabbi Zev Freundlich, in Monsey.

Their website is at https://shaareiarazim.com .

The website isn't very thorough, so see their brochure for more detailed info: https://shaareiarazim.com/video/msa.pdf

It's not exactly a vocational school, but it lists many alternative classes, such as woodworking, music, cooking, a marching band, etc.

Best of luck.

Thanks Blue Rose... unfortunately, he has sort of given up on his education, he's had quite a bit of....... unfairness..... in his life, to put it mildly, and has very low confidence and self esteem. He is seeing a therapist, but really needs something that will help toward his future, a profession, training in something he could work at, and enjoy and feel good about.

I wonder if there are any professionals out there who take on apprentices.... like in the olden days....

Old thread, but I'm bumping this up. The op wanted for Brooklyn, I'll take for anywhere in the US, but prefer east coast. A dorm is a huge plus and for a high schooler. TIA

Try contacting Yeshiva Doresh in North Miami Beach (Aventura), FL. I think they have some sort of vocational track.

Thank you, but I know about that school. My nephew goes there. I don't think it's for my son because when I spoke to them they said he needs to be evaluated and while he is being evaluated, he's doesn't need a school IMO that specifically asks that.
