Skills to Succeed is a performative presentation and workshop where youth build confidence, self-awareness and develop essential job skills. This unique blend of performance, practical job skill tutorials and theatrical games, scenes, and activities are designed to engage youth through active learning.

In the performance, students witness dramatized scenarios of real interview situations and then are given the opportunity to go onstage and rehearse for reality.

In the workshop, trained facilitators guide youth through exercises and activities, creating an open environment that offers practical, hands on learning for the participants.

Skills to Succeed assists youth in acquiring the tools they need to confront challenges, explore options, and become confident in their ability to secure a job!
