BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -
This week’s JA People of Action features the volunteers for Logan County High School’s Senior Seminar. Eleven volunteers taught the seniors the JA It’s My Job curriculum. JA It’s My Job (Soft Skills) helps students understand the value of professional communication and soft skills, making them more employable to future employers across multiple career clusters. Lessons focus on social and soft skill competencies relating real-life experiences to job skills and preparing students for their future careers. Topics include communication and presentation skills, manners, listening skills, and cell phone etiquette. Thank you to the wonderful administration, teachers, and students who welcomed Junior Achievement into their classrooms. A big thank you to all of the fantastic volunteers who took time out of their day and their very busy schedules to give back to the community!
