Students Need Life Skills Too

Help me give my students the life skills needed to succeed after graduation.

My Students

My students come from various grades, various social , economical, and environmental backgrounds. They are all very willing to obtain knowledge in various ways. But one thing they have in common is that They are all approaching adulthood. They all need the life skills in order to function in this ever changing world. Over half of my students are at risk students. They live in an atmosphere where there might be not much encouragement, not much guidance. Sometimes they have to be the adult in the home. They have to be the one to help pay the bills. They take care of the parents and their siblings. This truly is a great burden on the student. It’s very difficult for the student to concentrate.

My students need people who care , and teach them the life skills to be successful in their lives.

They need resources to help keep them strong and uplifted . My students need clothing,My students need food, My students need resources to teach themselves how to be great adults, maybe to someday be a leader!

My Project

With these materials I have requested I feel that it will give my students life skills. I feel this is very important in these trying and changing times.

I feel the materials I am ordering will give my students some of the life skills needed in these changing times.

As we all know the world is changing, and I think it is very important for students to have life skills to help them as they go through life to at least have the knowledge to be able to have some life skills as they continue on with life.
