Who, When and Where

Our I AM A.B.L.E. Workshops

Life Skills

6 weekly sessions

Having adequate life skills empowers young people and increases their independence and self-awareness. When young adults are equipped with skills such as time management, basic home repair and maintenance, and communication skills, including conflict resolution and active listening, they are better prepared to navigate the challenges of adulthood. 

By developing these life skills, young people are able to make informed decisions about their future, set achievable goals, and confidently pursue their passions. Furthermore, these skills help them become self-sufficient and resilient, which can lead to improved mental health and overall well-being. Ultimately, investing in the development of life skills in young people has the potential to impact their lives and the communities they live in positively.

This series is your gateway to acquiring essential life skills that will empower you to navigate the challenges of adulthood with confidence.

College Prep

6weekly sessions

College graduates typically earn more money and have more job opportunities than those without a college degree. However, applying for college can be an intimidating process, especially for young adults who are first-generation college students or come from low-income backgrounds. That’s why getting help with college applications can be a game-changer for many young adults. Through our I AM ABLE Career Development program, we provide college prep services to help our youth navigate the college application process and access the resources they need to succeed.
