Tools 4 Success Conference

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
