Life Lessons – virtual series

Adulting can be hard, but Purdue Extension and Indiana 4-H are here to help!

We are pleased to announce the Life Lessons Program for 2023. This program is open to youth currently in grades 9-12. This virtual, 8-week series of lessons will focus on topics that will have positive effects on youth as they grow such as budgeting, car care, and more. Sessions will be held every Tuesday from January 17th to March 7th at 7 p.m. EST/6 p.m. CT. Each session will include a one-hour live Zoom with follow up activities and resources available through Google Classroom. All sessions will be recorded for later viewing as well.

Session topics include: auto care, basics of budgeting, etiquette and people skills, food prep and safety, home care, online and social media safety, self-care and mental health, and will end with a session celebrating all that they have learned. Guest speakers will enhance various sessions to bring in expertise and provide youth the opportunity to connect with professionals. Thanks to special support from the Oakley Foundation, participants who participate in at least six of the sessions will receive an amazing Celebration Box full of supplies and goodies related to each topic area at the end of the program!
