What is Skills for Success:

Skills for Success (S4S) is an initiative for ASAP students to learn strategies that will help them focus and increase their GPA. Students explore their strengths and struggles, while considering the effects of their environments and communities on their academic growth. Sessions are mostly discussion-based with a variety of ways for you to engage and participate, including this fun word cloud below:
