Soft Skills: Preparing to Achieve College & Career Goals

Soft Skills are in demand in this 21st century workforce and college environment. Whether a student plans to attend college, join the military, or enter the workforce after high school, learning soft skills will improve their marketability and likelihood to succeed.  

This week, Director, Shawn Wright-Browner launched JELCC's new Soft Skills Program. Ultimately,  soft skills training is already embedded in all JELCC CTE classes.  Now, to further support students as they develop these valuable skills, JELCC is offering a Soft Skills Program.  In this program, English and math teachers will relate soft skills curriculum to English and math lessons.  During this week's Soft Skills Program launch, Mrs. Wright-Browner facilitated a series of activities that motivated students to begin developing their personal soft skills.
