Are you ready to master the “Top 10 21st Century Skills” for job success? Sign up today for Modesto Junior College’s New World of Work (NWOW) program! The NWOW program offers training in employability skills, work habits, and character traits that increase a student’s workforce preparedness, and it is free!
The program teaches students the cross-disciplinary work skills of adaptability, analysis/solution mindset, collaboration, communication, digital fluency, empathy, entrepreneurial mindset, resilience,
self-awareness, and social/diversity awareness. Just like any other subject, these competencies can be taught, practiced, and incorporated into one’s life.
Successful completion of each module provides the opportunity for students to earn a digital badge in each of these “Top 10 21st Century Skills.” Thirteen community colleges have piloted the New World of Work program with positive outcomes and results! The MJC’s NWOW program is taught by professors Shelley Akiona, Jon Kropp and Linda Kropp.
Students can register for a set of workshops on either Tuesdays or Thursdays for the
spring 2018 semester beginning on January 23 and January 25 respectively. To register
