TARGETED SKILLS SUPPORT

For many young people, “education” is a complicated topic. Ask any student how they feel about their education, and you're likely to receive any variety of responses: 

It’s great!

It’s ok.

I hate it.


Regardless of the responses, studies show that students require a conglomeration of skills in order to be successful at learning.  Some of these skills are first learned at home: how to listen, stay focused, wait your turn, manage conflict, make wise choices. Other skills are first learned in school: how to analyze a text, contribute to a large group discussion, write an essay. But what happens when a student has not learned a skill and is expected to continue moving forward in the learning process?
