Life Skills Academy

Rescheduled, TBD 

Kosair Charities Community Center

Life Skills Academy provides resources and training regarding job readiness, money management, and healthy relationships to CASA kids. Kids must be 13-18 years of age. Participants will receive $50 VISA gift card upon completion.


CASA is the perfect conduit for finding kids that could  “fall through the cracks“ were it not for a dedicated volunteer. Having an advocate can make all the difference in the world for a child. Every kid deserves to have someone who is focused on their needs. It's not always easy, however, if you're consistent and genuine, you can make a meaningful connection, and that's the best part.
