“The Ready4Real program has already had a positive impact on my health students. They look forward to ETS visiting and have already learned how to be better communicators while collaborating on group projects. This program will help each student become a healthier and more productive member of society.”

Daphne Gricoski, Seton Catholic Central High School

“Each Ready4Real program module includes exercises designed to help students prepare for success in work and in life. Young people participating in these sessions will benefit from the practical knowledge they gain for years to come.”
