Teaching life skills are an essential part of ensuring client success when they transition to adulthood and independence. We utilize the Casey Life Skills (CLS), which is a tool that assesses the behaviors and competencies youth need to achieve their long-term goals. Youth entering the program will take the CLS assessment, which identifies areas of strength and needs in permanency, daily living, self-care, relationships and communication, housing and money management, work and study life, career and education planning, and looking forward. The CLS program then generates both the results and recommended learning plans to follow in all domains. Life skills instructors then facilitate individual and group lessons geared at helping youth obtain skills in identified areas. Additionally, the program is designed to engage clients in everyday living, so they naturally acquire life skills with examples such as dishwashing, meal planning, cooking, laundry, budgeting, setting up a bank account, or balancing a checkbook.
