Our six (6) week Online Workplace Readiness Program for College Students is an interactive online learning program for neurodiverse college students interested in building essential personal and workplace skills and knowledge while gaining real world and work-related experience.

Workplace Readiness Skill Building

During the first four-weeks students learn and practice personal effectiveness skills and workplace competencies essential for succeeding in the workplace. The first live session of each day (10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon) is for learning (40 hours of Instruction) and includes an innovative combination of interactive and experiential elements to engage the learner. The second session (2:00 PM to 4:00 PM) is for individual work on course assignments (40 Hours of Practicum) to internalize the learnings from the first session with help and support from our coaches. There will be three (3) breaks in each classroom session, totaling approximately 30 minutes.

Simulated Internship

The next two weeks are dedicated to working in a team on real world projects (50 hours of Work) in a simulated work environment providing ample opportunities for practicing all the learnings from the prior four weeks.
