Brief Program Description

A good job is an essential stepping stone into adulthood. It provides not only a paycheck, but a sense of pride and purpose as well. Unfortunately, troubled teens who had difficulty getting along with peers and authority figures in school typically find themselves struggling to get along with co-workers and supervisors as well. This interactive workshop for teachers, counselors, and community staff explains why youth at risk have trouble adapting to workplace culture. It explores employers’ unspoken expectations, and offers cognitive behavioral strategies for teaching social-emotional skills to adjust successfully to the world of work.
