Life Management Skills
This curriculum was developed in an attempt to help youth ascertain their role in the world and get a broader understanding of why they are who they are and why they behave as they do. It was created with lessons and activities from the ARISE Life Management Skills program and includes the formula they have embraced for developing presentations aimed at youth.
The many sections throughout this life skills curriculum are meant to connect several ideas with the hope that program participants will be able to identify their role in society but also learn some coping skills and strategies to help them succeed as adults.
Faculty and staff at KEYS Academy have been certified in the ARISE Life Management Skills formula for presenting the curriculum and permission was obtained from the El Paso County Attorney in August 2016 to use material previously developed while Miguel A. Rivera was working with her office (under then County Attorney Jose Rodriguez) in 2006.
The information throughout this curriculum was combined with Microsoft® PowerPoint presentations in an effort to make the presentations more attractive to the participants and help the presenter gauge their position through an organized format.
