While one generation struggles to cope with the increasing pace and change of everyday life and the other generation knows their success is a result of having developed individual emotional awareness and the design of family support, the result is the formal design of a program of life skills.
Osiris Technology Pathways and North Hennepin Community College (NHCC) have compatible life skills programming missions which seek to provide services that assist adult learners with building skills on three levels: personal, academic and in workforce development. We would like to thank NHCC and their Diversity and Equity Leadership Program for their Life Skills partnership.
