I had a high school student reach out to me this week about working on my farm equipment. He is taking classes at BOCES in school but wants some real life experience too. Would you let him work on your stuff?
I admire the self-drive that this student possesses. That kind of determination will take him places. I think it is better to start by giving him an orientation of the farm while observing his work ethic.For me, it depends on how far along he is in his training and whether I thought he could handle it after meeting the boy. I've done something like that before and it worked out okay. I want to support the schools and students as much as I can.
