In addition to receiving one-to-one coaching, as well as tutoring when needed, students are given the opportunity to participate in life/work/school skills workshops throughout the year and are required to attend at least two sessions per semester.
Topics may include effective study habits, professional etiquette, developing a professional network, leadership skills, financial literacy, resume building, job search strategies, interview skills and more.

Some of the more recent workshops have included:
