Adulting 101

The goal of our project is to host a course of classes entitled Adulting 101. These classes will be once a month over a period of nine months. Our objective is to give teens and young adults successful skills to enter adulthood and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The topics that will be covered over the period of the course are emotional wellness, personal hygiene, healthy lifestyles (i.e.- drugs, alcohol. sex. fitness), nutritious meals on a budget, well-rounded relationships, how to find an apartment and maintain a hygienic and sanitary living environment, time organization skills, financial literacy, tips on surviving the first year of college, how to build a resume and effectively interview for jobs. The outcomes we hope to achieve are that the youth that participate will feel more confident as they approach and navigate these new phases in their lives. We hope that by imparting this information to them that they will become productive and successful. They will find a positive mindset toward growth and achievement. We ultimately hope that there will be a trickledown effect to future generations and a raising standard of living, pride and prosperity in the community. Tooele City Library agrees to: 1.
