Self-Advocacy Training

Available for Adults up to age 24, Self-Advocacy Training is a 30-hour interactive workshop that focuses on the development of soft skills – personal attributes needed for success on the job and apply to any career field. Soft skills relate to how you work and include interpersonal (people) skills, communication skills, listening skills, time management, empathy, critical thinking, problem solving, teamworking, professional attitude, and work ethic, among others, which are desirable in all professions.

What are soft skills?

Hiring managers typically look for job candidates with soft skills because they make someone more successful in the workplace. Someone can be excellent with technical, job-specific skills, but if they can’t manage their time or work within a team, they may not be successful in the workplace. Soft skills are also important to the success of most employers. After all, nearly every job requires employees to engage with others in some way. Another reason hiring managers and employers look for applicants with soft skills is that they are transferable skills that can be used regardless of the person’s job. This makes job candidates with soft skills very adaptable employees.
