Event Description

Henry County School Juniors and Seniors who are enrolled in the Work-Based Learning (WBL) internship program will have the opportunity to participate in a Work-Based Learning Success Seminar on Thursday, February 16. The event will be held at the Relevant Church located at 4770 Highway 42 in Locust Grove, at 11 AM – 1:30 PM, and offer students the opportunity to observe, engage, and prepare for transition to post-secondary, military, and employment opportunities.
The Success Seminar will connect students with business and organizational leaders who will instruct and provide guidance on the importance and development of soft skills which include interpersonal skills, social skills, communication skills, attitudes, and teamwork and leadership abilities. There will be as many as twenty-five business/community-based speakers and approximately 600 students participating. With engaging speakers, real-world examples, and essential training tools, our goal is to enable our WBL students to recognize and learn the core soft skills necessary for success at the next level.
