Life Skills
Children in out of home care often miss out on critical opportunities to learn some of life’s most basic lessons – everything from how to make a friend to why those rented bowling shoes are wet.  Lighthouse Youth Services is committed to assessing and training every youth in it’s out of home care programs in the development of individualized basic life skills. Every youth in these programs, 12 years and older, is monitored using the Ansell Casey Life Skills Assessment and follows a plan based on this assessment and the learning style of the youth. A number of best practice curricula are used based on the youth’s plan, the setting and the Lighthouse commitment that every child should master life skills necessary to become good citizens who act responsibly and are self-reliant.
