Connections 4 Success (C4S) has continued developing robust and resilient workforce development programs for our region with our Skills 2 Careers Program. The primary purpose of C4S’ Skills 2 Careers Program is to address the significant occupational skills gap across multiple industries affecting our region. This program offers youth and young adults opportunities to learn about professional opportunities, align their interests with career requirements, and gain on-the-job skills training. The Skills 2 Careers curriculum was utilized in 2019 by Literacy For Life, a comprehensive youth internship program designed for African American youths by The Oasis Project of Bible Center Church. The Skills 2 Careers Program will be utilized again in 2021 for two cohorts of the Literacy for Life and Chatham University workforce collaborative.
Connections 4 Success has a proprietary curriculum and toolkits designed to explore HPO and provide On-site soft skills training and off-site technical skills training methods through internship placements. In addition to having the opportunity to utilize the Skills 2 Careers teaching methodologies, modules, and toolkits, Connections 4 Success will work with the client executive team and partnering employers to customize soft skills trainings needed in today’s workforce.
