Our program is enriched by the diverse and talented group of youth we have the pleasure of meeting and working with through TPP.”

I have supported the program for many years and will continue to build relationships with these students and help them aspire to the next level of their education or employment.”

Elements that are commonly part of the school curriculum and/or educational delivery system.
Activities, learning experiences or strategies to increase career awareness, provide students with work-readiness skills and connect the classroom to work and engage in work-based learning experiences.
Engage youth in the process of developing self-advocacy and self-determination skills that apply to the classroom and the community. Link students with community agencies that provide support for transition after they leave high school. Engage business partners to advise and support work-based learning opportunities that lead to career readiness.
It is extremely vital that employers offer opportunities for students to get hands-on experience and interact with the public…being a part of the Workability 1 program supports the future or our youth.
