Professional Development

is a partner and resource in the youth workforce system. One resource that we are pleased to share with Montana agencies, schools and families is the MYTransitions Soft Skills Curriculum.

This curriculum was developed as a resource for anyone teaching employment skills to youth. Many youth with disabilities in Montana are entering the workforce with inadequate exposure to soft skills education. Through the use of the MYT Soft Skills Curriculum as well as providing Soft Skills Academies to youth and Train-the-Trainer opportunities to adults, we strive to continually improve the employability and marketability of our Montana youth.

MYTransitions is also a resource for schools, families and agencies who are teaching these skills to youth with disabilities or to inclusive classrooms. We offer a four-hour Train the Trainer Professional Development course that covers the following learning objectives:

  • What employment soft skills are and why it is important for youth to learn what they are and how to use them
  • How to access the MYTransitions Soft Skills curriculum and future updates
  • Techniques for including a wide variety of learning styles and abilities when teaching Soft Skills curriculum
  • A ‘tool box’ of activities to enhance student engagement of Soft Skills curriculum
  • How to use the MYTransitions assessment tool that supports Transition IEP goal development


MYT would love to partner with your school(s) or agency (s) and teach Soft Skills professional development course in your community.
