Tools 4 Success is a free, virtual conference designed for youth, young adults, and community members who experience a disability to dream, imagine and shape their future!
The conference focuses on career and college readiness and lifting up our youth, young adults, and community members who experience a disability. All of us need a circle of support. The Tools 4 Success Conference brings together the community to share their wisdom, insights, volunteer and paid work experience, college aspirations, resources, and more!
For twenty-four years (March 23, 1999 to the March 22, 2023) the conference was held in-person and by design on the Tacoma Community College Campus (TCC). Rooted to inspire, accessible by design, TCC offers a taste of a college campus. Since 2020 we are offering virtual conferences and welcome your ideas to keep dreaming so that we can shape our future!
If this is your first conference, welcome! If you are learning at home, welcome! We will be uploading as many resources as possible and tools from the sessions.
Sessions can include:
• Success Stories – hear from your peers!
• Build a better resume
• Employment advocacy – what are your rights?
• First impressions, how to create your own “about you” pitch
• Build your dream map – Person Centered Planning
• Preparing for a job interview
