Life Skills Instruction - fort lauderdale

Covenant House Florida offers job readiness training and life skills instruction through our Y.E.S. (Youth Enrichment Services) program, a comprehensive program that covers education, skill building and job readiness for youths.

Skill Building – Many of our older youths are unable to return to their families and are eager to live on their own; however, most have either never been employed or have had short stints of employment at minimum-wage positions. To facilitate their progress from homelessness to productive lifestyles, we offer:

Life Skills Education through intensive one-to-one case management and group counseling to foster mastery of:

  • Daily living skills including appropriate personal hygiene, laundry procedures, techniques for cleaning bathrooms and living areas, and using a map and schedule to identify bus routes, and
  • Self-empowerment skills including wise money management, abstinence and relationships, stress management, and positive recreation.

Y.E.S is partially funded by local individuals and foundations.
