MSU Extension Adulting 101Sessions build essential life skills

Back by popular demand, Michigan State University Extension (MSUE) is offering Adulting 101 again this summer. These engaging educational programs are designed for high school students and young adults to help demystify the obscure reality of being an “adult.” Each class is packed full of important life skills and tools necessary to live independently.

The Adulting 101 Summer Series will run on July 12, 19, 26 and August 2 with sessions on Getting Organized, Home Food Preservation, Informed Renter, and Healthy U. The summer classes will start virtually at 1:00 p.m. EST and last approximately an hour. Individuals will need to register at the MSU Extension website, and search adulting 101.

A large majority (92%) of past participants agreed or strongly agreed with the statement, “The Adulting 101 resources provided by MSU Extension are helpful.” One participant commented, “When I live on my own I feel like I can apply some of the things I learned with ease now that I have a better understanding.”

Each quarter MSU Extension offers a series of Adulting 101 classes for youth and young adults. Future topics will be: Changing the World with Just One Vote, Choose Your Future, Make a Spending Plan Work for You, Avoiding Money Mishaps.
