" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I get to help others around me. I find happiness in being kind and using my talents to change lives. It matters to me that we educate the generations after us continuously so that this world is always abundant with global citizens who will do their best to move our world towards peace and love. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: LIFE Skills Initiative
The objective of our project 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 getting a job straight out of high school. Lifestyle skills can teach them positive thinking and coping skills, interpersonal skills will aid them in assimilating into new environments, job or college, financial skills will help them budget and better understand loans they may apply for, and the educational skills will act as a crash course for what to expect in college if they choose that path and what can help them be more successful. 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.
