“According to the National Collaborative Workforce and Disability for Youth (NCWD/Youth), the development of soft skills is identified as a critical component for success in activities such as civic participation and youth leadership in addition to school- and work-based learning experiences. Companies have identified the following competencies as key to success of young workers: Communication; Networking; Enthusiasm and Attitude; Teamwork; Problem Solving and Critical Thinking; Professionalism.
“Activities that can be found in this publication were created to provide an introduction to the “basics” of soft skills. These materials have been designed with youth service professionals in mind –specifically those working with in-school and out-of school youth, ages 14-21, on career and workforce readiness skills.
“These activities can be used by a facilitator within a school’s career and technology center, or a faith-based career search program, and by youth ages, 14-21 that are eager to find a paid position.” -publisher
