• Future CLIMBers


    Soft skills are everyday interpersonal skills that job seekers need to succeed on the job. They include communicating clearly and appropriately, remembering work directions, working well with others, and knowing how to  solve  problems. These skills will help youth succeed in life no matter what they are doing. They are necessary for youth to succeed in education, job training, independent living, community participation, and, ultimately, in the workplace.  We are using a curriculum developed by the Department of Labor and Big Business to give young adults the basic skills they need to succeed in the workplace, Skills to Pay the Bills. We feel the class will be more effective if local businesses presents each topic, below are the topics and the organizations presenting them.

    • Communication - GE Aircraft Engines 
    • Enthusiasm & Attitude - Premier Health Atrium Medical Center 
    • Teamwork - Kettering Health Network
    • Networking - Kettering Health Network
    • Problem Solving & Critical Thinking - McGraw/Kokosing
    • Professionalism - First Financial Bank
