As most D’Evelyn students know, they get a fantastic education that prepares them for college success. However, with the lack of a life skills class, many students find themselves unprepared for the future. A life skills class is necessary to implement healthy habits and direct these students into adulthood. If this class is created, seniors should be required to take this class the semester before college.

Units that should be taught:

Cars/Vehicles:

  1. How to jump a car
  2. How to change a tire

  1. Simple cooking skills
  2. How to shop smart at the grocery store
  3. Organizational systems around the house
  4. Laundry + Ironing

Finance:

  1. How to get a loan + establishing credit
  2. Student loans, mortgages, credit cards
  3. Insurance 
  4. Budgeting
  5. Investing + Stocks

Emergencies:

  2. Simple first aid
  3. CPR + Heimlich maneuver

Homes:

  3. How to change a diaper, bottles, etc. 
  4. Basic Home Maintenance
