As teachers of the Deaf, it is our responsibility to ensure that our students can succeed in their lives after high school. Today's world revolves around having a college education. But what happens to those who decide not to go down that path? They need to know what their alternatives are should they not attend college. To address those needs, a workshop will be developed to educate deaf high school students about what kinds of jobs are popular and what skills are needed to do those jobs. The workshop will take place once a week for five weeks. The workshop will empower the students by giving them the tools needed to find out more about themselves so when they search for a job, they know it will be a good match. Students will leave the workshop with a portfolio of materials that they will be able to refer back to when actually seeking employment.
