Being an adult is hard. On a good day. Learning the ‘big’ life lessons from multiple mistakes can be distressing at best. Doesn’t the saying go, “if only I knew then what I know now . . . .” Well, that’s exactly what this class is all about!


We can watch YouTube videos all day, scour through reddit and Instructables and wikiHow, wearing out our eyes reading about how something could be done. You know what’s better than that? Actually learning the skill by doing.


Throughout the year, we’ll be learning skills such as: basic car maintenance, budgeting (which includes balancing a checkbook, credit and debt, buying a car/home, renting), basic cooking skills and how to meal plan, home maintenance and repair, along with any other skills the students are interested in learning.


All classes are full year classes. Students enrolled in a Fall Semester class will automatically enroll for Spring Semester in December to ensure their place in the class. Pricing is per semester.
