#UAS Students Prepare for Their Future With MVCC Workshops


On May 21, 2018, five #UASCS students traveled to Mohawk Valley Community College and attended workshops focused on self-advocacy and job skills training.

The first workshop, "Transitioning from High School to College: What You Need to Know." presented tools to be successful in college and encouraged "self-advocacy." The presenter explained how crucial it was for students to contact the student services department at their school to ask for help if problems arose that were outside of their abilities to handle. In college, they can't have their favorite teacher or mom solve their problems, and request services for them. Learning to advocate for yourself and seek guidance is a critical component of future success.

The second workshop was "Continuing Education Services, ACCES-VR."Students engaged in this workshop because it's immediate benefits were clear. Students focused on interviewing, resume writing and training to get a job #UASAtoms left that day having learned about the importance of self-advocacy and about the many opportunities available for job training.
