JA Personal Success
JA Personal Success is a program in which high school students develop the work-ready skills to help them land and keep a job.
Throughout this program, the students are afforded the opportunity to participate in group activities to foster teamwork skills; greet people in the work environment; understand the steps in the hiring process; practice key first-job "work ready" skills like listening and following directions; properly complete a job application; prepare for a job interview and complete a personal interview and discuss ways to improve individual performance.
