Education Is Freedom
The Workforce Readiness Curriculum was created by EIF to facilitate personal and professional development. EIF offers research-based interactive workshops promoting character development, life skills, and knowledge about careers and higher education to students on their campuses. Workshops address issues that prevent students from succeeding, help students develop strategies for studying and test taking, allow students to increase their postsecondary education related knowledge, aid students in developing professional attitudes and behaviors, and stress the importance of communication skills. We are in the process of transitioning the Workforce Readiness Curriculum to an online, interactive format that would allow students more opportunities to complete the workshops.
