Overcoming Employment Barriers™ is an educational and counseling game that gives job seekers the knowledge and skills they need to overcome barriers to getting a good job. Barriers to employment refer to obstacles that a person faces that would prevent him or her from landing a wide range of jobs. This game deals explicitly with prejudice and stereotypes. Overcoming Employment Barriers also fosters development of positive personal qualities and presents strategies for overcoming employment barriers. This game is different from most board games. Players do not go around the board with their pawns. The board serves mainly as a playing surface and a presentation of the skills used in the game.
Overcoming Employment Barriers™ addresses aspects of the following SCANS Skills.
Foundation Skills: Basic Skills, Thinking Skills, Personal Qualities
Workplace Competencies: Interpersonal Skills, Information, Systems
This game is suitable for 2-6 players (or more if playing as a team), and for individuals 14 thru adult.
