Self Advocacy is a 2 part program designed to provide the necessary guidance to learn how to become more independent. Each participant will walk away with several takeaways that will assist them in becoming more job-ready. Examples include resumes, references, a cover letter and letters of recommendations. Etiquette - Much of the program is spent on what is appropriate when on the job. Many participants are not experienced and they often find it difficult to determine what is appropriate when working. Role playing methods are used to develop conflict resolutions and decision making skills. Many students just have to understand the difference between work and social life and this program helps teach that. Job Shadowing - Gain a “behind the scenes” look into future career choices. Our trainers will navigate a tour of area businesses to provide an observation and also an insight into these jobs by talking with real staff members onsite.
