Life Skool is a youth development organization that provides comprehensive prevention and intervention developmental leadership programs, behavioral health services, conferences, and workshops to youth that challenge students to unlock intangibles that empower self-discovery. We believe that every young person has the potential to become leaders in their families, careers, environments, and beyond.
Our target population is identified through family involvement, school discipline, foster care, and the community supervision system. The average Life Skool students come from socioeconomically disadvantaged neighborhoods, single-parent homes, and cultures of hardship, often resulting in unstable behaviors based on survival and antisocial tendencies. We promise to eliminate the challenges and barriers that factors into most students entering the juvenile justice system. Life Skool aims to disrupt this cycle by developing three underdeveloped principal skills: Leadership Identification, Self-Empowerment, and Conflict Resolution. Studies have shown that developing these skills can reduce the appeal of criminal activity and prevent a revolving door in the criminal justice system while allowing students to maximize their potential in discovering their gifts and talents to live purposeful lives.
