Level Up Land
WFSU Summer Challenge 2022

  • Dear Parents:

    This year, the WFSU Summer Challenge is investigating ways to ‘level up’ in life to prepare for the ‘world of work’ by asking questions like:

    • What kinds of jobs are out there and who works them?
    • How can I level up my skills in my everyday life?
    • What are ‘soft skills’ and why are they important?


    Different Ways of Working

    Our Summer Challenge adventure will take us all over Tallahassee, meeting new people who work at places like Alchemy Climbing and Tallahassee Youth Orchestras.


    How does my child level up using soft skills?

    Think about teamwork, communication, patience, and listening – things your child might use daily at home and school! How do those translate to your child’s future in the workplace? Tune in to WFSU’s Summer Challenge Kickoff (details below) to find out!
