Welcome to Fountain of Hope's Employability/Life Skills Assessment (ELSA) format for families! This page is dedicated to providing valuable information, resources, and guidance for families who wish to enhance their employability and life skills. We understand the importance of these skills in today's competitive world and believe in empowering families to succeed.

Why Are Employability/Life Skills Important?

Employability and life skills play a vital role in individual and family success. These skills encompass a broad range of abilities, including communication, critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, adaptability, and more. By honing these skills, individuals and families can improve their chances of securing employment, advancing in their careers, and achieving overall well-being.

Assessing Your Employability/Life Skills

Fountain of Hope has developed the Employability/Life Skills Assessment (ELSA) format to help families assess their current skill levels and identify areas for improvement. This format encompasses various aspects of employability and life skills, enabling families to gain a comprehensive understanding of their strengths and weaknesses.


The first step in the ELSA format is conducting a self-assessment. Families are encouraged to reflect on their skills and abilities across different areas, such as communication, problem-solving, time management, leadership, and more. Honest self-reflection is key to identifying areas that require development and growth.

Guided Assessment

Building upon the self-assessment, Fountain of Hope offers guided assessments to provide families with a structured approach to evaluating their employability and life skills. These assessments include interactive tools, questionnaires, and real-world scenarios to help families identify their strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement.

Expert Consultation

For families seeking personalized guidance, our team of experts is available for consultation. Our experts bring extensive knowledge and experience in employability and life skills development.
