ASaP students will blaze a trail that will result in long-term ROI for the individual, school community, higher-learning and commerce.
"So critical to the organization are the development of soft skills that [companies] rank it “as one of their top five challenges” in order to maintain competitiveness.
Some would argue that it is not hard skills that will make the big difference in the success of an organization; it’s the soft skills. The soft skills create agile organizations, develop innovative companies, make the best places to work, and build the most admired companies. Soft skills bring out the best in people . . .”
From the book Measuring the Success of Leadership Development: A Step-by-Step Guide for Measuring Impact and Calculating ROI by Phillips, Phillips, Ray
They are not soft skills to us; they are the foundation on which future success is built.
A primary goal of ASaP is to free-up valuable resources (time and money) of higher learning and businesses by beginning intentional training of the non-technical skills in high school. Graduates that go on to higher learning and enter the workforce will do so with a greater degree of foundation-skill competency.
