Life Skills classes are no longer found in traditional secondary school curriculum. As teens graduate and move on to college, they are often left without a solid set of skills to truly be independent. There have been countless articles and books written on the topic of “adulting.”
We developed Skills4Life to address the need for a space where teenagers can learn the skills necessary to tackle the challenge of living on their own. Skills4Life gives your teen the opportunity to learn and ask questions from experts and develop the following skills:
