Financial advice for high school students

I have a question from a reader I’d like advice on: “I am always interested in good ways to advise my soon-to-bee graduated seniors regarding building wealth at a young age; considering most of them will struggle to simply pay their bills and to live in Denver because of our current insane growth in the housing market. It used to be that we always told kids that college is the best way to succeed financially. While this may still be true for many kids (it’s hard to disagree that more human capital doesn’t help your bottom line), I’m quite curious to know about how to help my students who have no interest in traditional college pathways or college at all.” Requirements: Personal finance expert.
