Life and Social Skills

“Life skills training adds to a youth’s tool box for life, and is preventive of future negative outcomes, including delinquency.”  Snohomish, WA, Dept. of Human Services, Juvenile
Delinquency Report

Through our support for life and social skills training, the TYS Foundation helps youth gain the social competencies needed for a successful transition to adulthood.

  • Aggression Replacement Training, an evidence-based model program, teaches youth anger management, social skills, and moral reasoning.
  • Junior Achievement sessions, conducted by volunteers, promotes financial literacy and workplace readiness skills.
  • Community outings provide opportunities to learn and practice new social skills.
