BRACE YOURSELF: Life Skills Retreat


BRACE YOURSELF: LIFE SKILLS RETREAT (formerly Transitions Retreat)

July 12 - 15
Lincoln University
Jefferson City, MO

Open to Ages 14-19
Prepare Your Future with Life Skills Training

Life Skills Retreat is a weekend filled with learning and fun for teens in foster, adoptive, guardian, or kinship homes. Throughout the weekend teens will stay in the dorms at Lincoln University and participate in workshops covering finances, cooking, housing, self awareness, career preparation, human trafficking, mental health, immune health, basic home and auto repair, driving skills, and self care. They will have opportunities to learn about entering college, the workforce, or military and spend evenings hanging out with 100 other teens, bowling, in a talent show, and at nightly bonfires and activities.

This weekend is truly about equipping our youth with skills to set them up for success and to surround them with peers in similar situations to their own, establishing friendships and support systems vital to promoting stable futures.

Various community groups will be sending over 35 volunteers to supervise and guide the teens through these activities 24/7.
