Life Skills Pillar

Through our Life Skills Pillar, youth are exposed to a variety of programming that aims to develop their constructive interpersonal skills, autonomy, positive mental health, and self-confidence. Our Life Skills Pillar provides exposure to opportunities that our Scholars would not have access to otherwise. Through arts, skills training, civic engagement, and ethics, our Scholars are able to develop professional etiquette, accountability, responsibility, leadership, and communication skills that they can transfer to higher education and workplace settings.


  • Arts and Music
  • Job Training
  • Ethics and Civic Engagement
  • Self-Esteem & Healthy Choices
  • Thriving Skills/Coping Skills


  • Youth are able to handle challenging situations and learn how to deal positively with resulting reactions
