Millennium Fellowship Project: LIFE Skills Initiative

The objective of the LIFE Skills Initiative is to reach out to Title I high schools in the Charlotte Mecklenburg area and give the students access to resources they can use to learn helpful life skills. These include lifestyle, interpersonal, financial, and educational skills, which make up the acronym LIFE for our project name. We want to give them information about these areas so they can be better equipped to handle their futures, whether they take the college path or are getting a job straight out of high school. We hope that by giving them these tools, they’ll be able to break the poverty cycle they experience and give themselves and their children better lives.
