The program is to help students develop softs skills like communication, attitude, work ethic, image, and other things to help them in the workforce. The program has been implemented throughout the state and reaches over 25,000 high school students.
“This is a program that teaches young people how to get a job and how to keep a job,” Rosalind James said. “They’re 12 lessons that teach soft skills that they need. For example, the importance of getting to work on time. The importance of being committed to your work.”
