It's the skill set every employer needs and few curricula include, soft skills. The Daytona Regional Chamber, in partnership with Volusia County Schools and CareerSource Flagler Volusia, hosts the 3rd annual Soft Skills Youth Summit on Tuesday, December 12, from 10:00 a.m. until approximately 1:00 p.m.
High school juniors and seniors will take part in this interactive program with business leaders sharing their expertise on the requirements of a professional workplace.
The tentative agenda includes:
An educational session on five key soft skills for the workplace: attire, communication, etiquette, punctuality, and work ethic.
A fashion show highlighting the various kinds of business attire.
A large group session helping student participants identify their existing network, as well as understanding the power of their social media presence (good and bad).
A catered business lunch allowing students to implement the soft skills they learned about in the morning while enjoying additional engagement with a community business leader.
An inspirational keynote presentation from local entrepreneur Jayson Meyer, President & CEO of Synergy Billing to tie all the days lessons together.
If you would like to sponsor this important workforce development event or volunteer to share your expertise with these future members of the local talent base, please contact Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce Vice President of Resource Development Ken Phelps at email@example.com.
