Family Life skills Academy (FLA)
Teens and their parents engage in hands-on, interactive activities that teach valuable lessons on the importance of taking personal responsibility for one’s own life outcomes. Teens and parents participate in both conjoined and individual breakout sessions designed to kick start a family dialogue that ultimately establishes an environment that removes barriers in communication. Teen participants enjoy age-appropriate, real-world learning applications that consist of hands-on activities that nurture positive decision making and self-efficacy skills. FLA parents benefit from research-based, outcome-driven parenting lessons that equip them with improved parenting and direct supervision skills. Parents typically say the program gives them a new perspective of their teenager(s) as well as motivation to challenge themselves as parents.
