Signal Success is a comprehensive curriculum designed and tested by education and workforce development partners to help young people develop essential skills for future success. Students receive systematic instruction in core soft skills while engaging in meaningful future planning.
The Signal Success Story
In 2012, the Commonwealth Corporation, a quasi-state agency in Massachusetts, set out to design a program to help teens develop skills to be successful at work and in their future careers. The resulting curriculum has grown from a short course to a comprehensive offering with adaptations for different program and participant needs. To date, in partnership with more than 72 organizations and schools, over 34,000 young people have used Signal Success to:
- Learn how to show initiative at work
- Develop strong communication and collaboration skills
- Build habits that support dependability
- Navigate online applications and interviews
- And MUCH more.
