soft skills are keys to success
Soft skills prepare students for the rigor of a 21st century workplace, but they also improve a student’s academic outcomes. To improve soft skills awareness and integration in schools, we have endeavored on two major programs:
Soft Skills Community of Practice
Our Soft Skills Community of Practice (SSCOP) brings together education leaders from 25 schools across Orlean Parish to discuss and share best practices around school-wide soft skills integration.
Soft Skills Teacher Fellowship
The Soft Skills Teacher Fellowship (SSTF) trains and supports teams of teachers at various public schools across New Orleans, so they can better integrate and share the importance of soft skills in their classrooms. Teams of teachers work with us over the course of the year to gain a better understanding and successfully execute soft skills into their curricula.
