Teaching Social Capital Literacy for Workforce Success

With this course, students will open up opportunities that they may have never dreamed were possible.

WSJS is more than a course. It’s a framework to help youth succeed. It's built on our social capital framework. The SCB social capital framework recognizes that connections are a key determinant of labor market success, and utilizes structured activities to help youth connect to a wide range of social capital assets both within and outside of their community. It's about connecting youth to information and individuals so they'll never have to look for a job again.
