The idea behind the Dress For Success Global Education Foundation’s annual high school event is to present students with “the soft skills necessary so they can further their education and career goals,” foundation CEO, founder and Vallejo native Tony Santos said.
These are the skills that aren’t always taught in the classroom, but are nevertheless essential to success in the real world. Often, these types of lessons come from trial and error over time. This program hopes to cut down on some of the more painful and time consuming avoidable mistakes.
The fifth outing for the event was held Tuesday at the Vallejo High School auditorium, though it was the first time all juniors, in all the academies, were invited, organizer and bio-tech academy director, Twila Jackson said. The event launched five years ago, as one directed toward the Law Academy at Bethel High School.
