Life Skills Series Starting Soon

Life Skills

Life skills are positive and adaptive behaviors that make it possible for us to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of life. Life skills enable us to secure our own well-being and become active and productive members of the community. Life skills are often taught by parents, either indirectly through example, or directly with the purpose of teaching a specific skill. Parenting itself can be considered a life-skill. 

Sometimes, when families and relationships break down due to parental lapses, divorce, substance abuse or other risky behavior, we miss the opportunity to learn important life-skills that will help us to succeed in life. For this reason, Catholic Charities offers several life-skills classes to fill in the gaps. Keep reading for a list of times for our next series of life-skills classes . . .
