Purdue Extension and Indiana 4-H are offering a program targeted to high school students through a virtual eight-week series of lessons.
The workshop series, “Life Lessons,” begins Jan. 17 and will focus on topics that will have positive effects on youths as they grow into adulthood, according to a news release. The series is based on the mission of Indiana 4-H to provide real life educational opportunities that develop young people at a statewide level, the release said.
Through Google Classroom, topics covered in the one-hour lessons will focus on auto care, basics of budgeting, etiquette and people skills, food prep and safety, home care, online and social media safety, self-care and mental health and celebrating what students have learned. Participants will have follow-up activity after each lesson to reinforce learning, including one virtual component and one off-screen component, according to a news release.
Guest speakers will also join lessons during various sessions to provide expertise and give participants an opportunity to connect with professionals. Registration can be completed by visiting v2.4honline.com/.
