Life Skills is a program offered to youth between the ages of 12 and 20. It is a preventative and proactive program which focuses on defining and developing life skills and developmental assets of youth.
The program focuses on promoting 40 developmental assets which have been researched and defined by the Search Institute.
Through this research, we know that developmental assets are essential building blocks for young people to thrive and grow into adults. The Search Institute has identified the following building blocks of healthy development that help young people grow up healthy, caring, and responsible. They are:
While focusing on each youth’s strengths, Life Skills offers the youth a number of opportunities to access the program through individual mentorship as well as group activities.
Our hours are flexible to meet the needs of the youth. Through our programs, Life Skills provides youth a safe and supportive environment to help further develop skills with the goal of overcoming barriers and developing positive relationships, and to promote wellness.
We partner with other community organizations to ensure the youth receives the most accurate information and is well connected with their community. Each youth is in charge of identifying goals that are important to them, which allows Life Skills to provide each with a person-centered program.
SIGN Life Skills works with youth ages 12 to 20 to prepare them for the adult and working world. Services include one-on-one individual and group mentoring, opportunities to meet socially with their peers, and in all activities encourage them to utilize the 40 key internal and external assets that will assist them in their growth and development. In this podcast, we talk to Christopher Smith, the manager of SIGN Life Skills.
