Hello everyone! I had the pleasure this Tuesday, July 25th, to witness five of our residents graduate from the Life Skills 201 Program at the Peace Center. Our residents went through a seven-week course packed with real life learning. Here are some of the things they learned:
– Budgeting (food budgeting, different ways of making a budget, envelope system)
– Do’s and don’ts of credit cards and payday loans
– Life priorities (wants v. needs)
– Nutrition (chalked full of healthy recipes they can make from our produce in our garden)
– Resume building
– Time management
We are SO extremely thankful for the staff and volunteers at the Peace Center for providing such a friendly and fun atmosphere. The Peace Center is part of Capital Christian Center. They are a resource center with a full food bank, workshops, and a plethora of educational workshops. We are so honored that they came to US and asked our residents what they wanted to learn. I was lucky enough to be able to attend all of the classes and see each Life Coach and resident learn from each other’s lived experiences. It was a beautiful thing! The Peace Center is planning on doing another Life Skills 201 Program in September/October. We hope for more residents and community members to join in!
