Mission of Networks School of Employability Skills
November 26, 2019
Hosted by Joyce Bender
Joyce welcomes Dionna Harris, guidance counselor with Networks School of Employability Skills based in Newark, Delaware. Networks prepares students to become productive members of a workforce. This is accomplished by combining career technical education and employability skill training through the operation of 11 community-based enterprise areas. A hands-on instructional approach is supported by equipment and technology as textbooks and each enterprise area as a classroom. Ms. Harris will explain the concept in-depth during the show.
