THE CHALLENGE

Youth living in underserved areas experience inequality when preparing for their careers. Article 1 works to level the playing field throuhg its JobReady program.

 

ABOUT THE PROJECT

JobReady helps students recognize and value soft skills while showing how those skills can be implemented in their job search. The program consists of two tracks:

1. A digital platform that describes different scenarios, as well as the skills required for positive outcomes in those situations.

2. In-person workshops that further develop soft skill concepts.

 

IN THEIR OWN WORDS

"I thought soft skills were natural, fixed skills, but in fact my experiences within the Article 1 Association have allowed me to develop my ability to reach out to others, which turned out to be very useful in the job market."
