As the Librii team continues to build its network in Anacostia, we recently we made the acquaintance of Chef Shawn Lightfoot. Shawn exemplifies the kind of citizen who feels a personal responsibility for his community and has found a way to put those beliefs into action through his work.
Soft skills are crucial to workplace success, but they’re hard to find. Librii steps up to connect its users with the skills they need.
Librii’s mission is to provide world-class educational experiences to underserved communities. When discussing education, specifically training that prepares someone for getting ahead in life, the conversation almost automatically focuses on developing mastery over specific skills or tools. Too often we overlook building an individual’s “soft skills,” which often times are equally (or MORE) important that technical skills.
Librii builds Internet-Age libraries so that people can follow their interests, acquire skills, and discover opportunities.
This is our elevator pitch. It is an indispensable tool for a young company, carefully crafted to deliver critical information efficiently at a time when attention is fleeting. This post goes a step further and gives a slightly deeper description of what Librii is all about and where we are headed.
