How To 101: Life Skills Crash Course for Teens
April 6th, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Joe’s Movement Emporium

Are you excited for college and completely nervous to live away from home for the first time?

You’ve got a scholarship to the college of your dreams, but without a budget, you blow through your money and have to call your parents and beg for money- or take out more loans. In four years, you’re saddled with the burden of re-paying extra student loans you didn’t need in the first place.

Think about the sinking feeling of dread that comes with missing an amazing opportunity to connect with someone you admire because your palms get sweaty and your vision blurs just thinking about approaching a stranger.

One minute you’re excited and ready for your brand-new life, the next you’re panicking, worrying if you’re ready enough.

You are not alone in feeling apprehensive, but that doesn’t make you feel any better. That’s the bad news. The good news is that you can feel more prepared.

I know you want to be that girl who walks onto campus with her head held high, feeling confident and ready to take on new challenges.

You can learn how!

MissHeard Media is hosting How To 101: Life Skills Crash Course on April 6th at Joe’s Movement Emporium from 10a-4p that teaches college-bound teen girls to navigate living away from home for the first time.

In this one-day retreat, you will learn life skills that will help you prepare for campus living! After the event, you’ll feel more confident and prepared to handle whatever comes your way, on campus and off, such as:

• Making a great first impression in a professional or personal setting
• Public speaking
• Being assertive without being aggressive
• Active listening, including listening to & responding to other viewpoints
• Managing stress & high-pressure situations
• Repairing clothes in a pinch
• Creating & sticking to a budget
• Filing taxes
• Writing & sending professional correspondence
• and more!

You’ll learn these skills by:

  1. Creating a space where you feel comfortable to share
  2. Taking teeny, tiny risks by being creative
  3. Practicing a new skill through hands-on activities
  4. Reflecting on what you’ve learned through group discussion
  5. Celebrating your new skills!

By the end of our time together, you will leave with a new set of ‘adulting’ skills, a take-home booklet, and increased preparedness and confidence!

This event includes lunch, snacks, and small group activities, so space is extremely limited. Are you ready to step into the real world?
