Life Skills Network

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.


IF YOUR SCHOOL IS INTERESTED in our College Life Skills and Workforce Development Program and services, please contact Neda Kellogg at



The college/young adult Life Skills designed programming is for interested learners seeking to form currently unknown or known life and career areas into accomplishments which includes the learners’ input into tools and techniques that will meet their needs.

Post-Secondary Scholarships in the amount of $250 provide participants in the Osiris Technology Pathways a hand-up as they attend post secondary institutions, trade schools or certification programs


Workforce Development

The College Life Skills strategy brings together both the hard and soft skills career readiness programming in an environment where learners can practice envisioning their future goals and aspirations.   


Goals and aspirations are then defined based on the “skills gap” employers say are needed. 'Success in' and 'completion of' workshops with on-site help to improve confidence and job performance, increase the quality of work, independence, productivity and efficiency is then evaluated.
