Employability and Workplace Skills Training

We propose an 8-week employability & workplace skills course for high school seniors to resolve the lack of essential skills in the workforce and create a talent pipeline for employers that can be easily hired and retained for a long-term duration. The training will include interactive sessions, in-class role plays, case studies, a group project, and a final presentation.
