Essential Skills

Our Essential Skills Facilitators work with participants in individual and group settings to deliver a curriculum based on the Nine Essential Skills necessary for successful employment. This program provides a foundation for continuous learning and enables participants to better prepare for the workforce.

Individuals work at their own pace and multiple learning styles are accommodated. We strive to have our participants engaged in the learning process.
