Life Skills Training
Application Deadline: December 30, 2022
Atlanta GLOW's life skills training program focuses teaching female youth and young adults the transitional skills that are most relevant to their living independently as an adult such as finding and keeping a job, money and time management, making healthy choices and more. The aim of the program is to equip them with the life skills needed for their well-being, confidence and safety as they navigate high school, postsecondary education, employment and other life milestones. Each lesson aims to enhance the daily living, problem-solving, academic, employability, and social skills so they may become more self-sufficient and achieve their long-term goals.
