As libraries begin to take on more unique roles in the community, offering Adulting 101 programs to teens and college students is a great way to prepare young adults for their first steps into independence. This course will assess the growing need Adulting 101 programs, discuss the types of basic life skills teens want to learn, and look at examples of these types of programs.
