What Are Life Skills?
You might know them as soft skills, social-emotional skills, essential skills, or noncognitive skills. We call them life skills to encompass the ways self-confidence, responsibility, teamwork, and communication—to name just a few—are transferable across a day, career, and lifetime. These skills are as necessary to navigating the relationships and day-to-day decisions that determine success in a family as they are at school, on the job, and within a community.
Over almost 20 years, IYF has grown Passport to Success (PTS) into a world class, award-winning life skills training program.
