Life Skills

Life Skill Workshops

MNYS staff develop and implement life skills workshops with and for youth. Topics include but are not limited to: education planning, employment skills, communication, interpersonal skills, and physical and mental health and wellness.

Service Learning

MNYS staff assist youth in developing and hosting service learning projects and events. Through service, young people have an opportunity to connect with their peers and elders for mentoring and to increase their personal support system. These youth also learn valuable life skills for their successful transition to adulthood.

Wellness Planning

MNYS staff assists youth ages 12-24 in developing personal wellness plans. Youth determine their overall wellness by completing a self assessment in the areas of physical, spiritual, emotional, social, intellectual, and occupational. Through planning, youth are connected with resources and permanent connections to support their plan.
