Welcome to another Third Thursday Together Curriculum Edition with the Work Ready Life Skills Curriculum.
Work Ready Life Skills teaches life skills people need to become qualified applicants for job openings around the country. The biggest skills gap for many first-time workers are problem-solving, collaboration, and communication. Purdue Extension developed Work Ready to teach the critical life skills our workforce needs to succeed in their first job. Join us in this webinar to learn how to implement the Work Ready Curriculum, the target audience, success stories, and ways the curriculum can be adapted for your needs.
