Life Skills Program for Young Adults from Oregon

ATC - Student feeling optimistic going through rejuvenation at transitional living program

At The Crossroads (ATC) is a premier Life Skills Program helping struggling young adults from Oregon with Independent Living Skills for the transition to adulthood. The top Life skills training programs in Oregon typically focus on helping struggling young adults between the ages of 18 to 25. These young people are experiencing self-defeating behaviors that are preventing them from successfully transitioning into adulthood. Comprehensive, in-depth programs, like At The Crossroads, offer life skill training designed to prepare young adult men and women to make positive life decisions. Parents, if you have an adult child from Oregon who is struggling to launch, call At The Crossroads (ATC) at (866) 439-0354. Our job is to coach you regarding your next step.

Although At The Crossroads may be located outside the state of Oregon, ATC accepts young adults from all over the country. Many young men and women from Oregon have chosen to relocate to our location in Southern Utah to attend ATC, and successfully learn the life skills necessary to make the transition to adulthood. We are located in the perfect place to "take time out" to learn the essential life skills needed to be self-supporting successful adults. If you are set on finding an Independent living program in Oregon, we can assist you in making a recommendation.

Unfortunately, sometimes vital Life preparation skills needed by young men and women entering adulthood were not acquired during adolescence. Young people in this category may have learned by "trial and error", with devastating effects. "Life skills" refer to the skills every adult needs in order to live a "quality life." Life skills are intended to guide us in living functional lives, where we accomplish our dreams and live up to our full potential. If your young adult from Oregon requires life skill development, then consider contacting ATC.

Center for Independent Living Oregon

Life Skill Training Programs, such as At The Crossroads, typically include personal development training. This type of training involves effective communication skills, interpersonal skills (anger management and dealing with stress), time management, personal appearance, and money management. Money management is a significant issue. It usually includes skills training on credit building, proper use of "credit" (best practices), paying monthly bills on time, managing a checking account and saving money.

ATC - Students seeking education at independent living home for young adultsAnother important life skill is the ownership of personal property, as an automobile (this typically includes maintenance of cars and insurance). What's more are the personal life skills such as, medical and health insurance, signing a lease for an apartment or home, and picking the right roommates. In addition, there is job preparedness, finding and keeping a job, creating resumes, job interview practice, career guidance, and paying taxes and filing tax returns. ATC clients receive these types of training and more.

What about education?

It takes skill to apply to college and get financial aid. You have to be patient, tenacious, and thorough. A college experience can change the direction of one's life. To fail to attend college due to a failure to navigate the application process would be sad. In addition, good students learn to balance the demands of school, work, and social activities. We teach "balance" in all aspects of life to the clients of ATC. Is your young adult able to apply to college and balance academics and social activities? If not, consider the ATC program as the place for him or her to learn these skills.

Additionally, there are more life skills that are important to learn... shopping for groceries, cooking, learning about good nutrition, physical fitness, and balancing social events with obligations and responsibilities. Finally, there is creating/managing a budget for expenses, such as rent, food, utilities, clothing, recreation. Students from Oregon can come to ATC and learn these skills and return home to flourish.

Important facts that parents should know..

Sex education may be taught in health class, but your teen might not hear or understand everything they need to know to make tough choices about sex. Awkward as it may be, sex education is a parent's responsibility. By reinforcing and supplementing what your teen learns in school, parents can prepare them for a lifetime of healthy sexuality.

Find ways to be with your teen daily, and longer times on weekends. Listen more than you talk. Over time, the connection with your teen will get better, even while she's spending lots of time with her friends and activities. Every teen needs at least one parental relationship that they can be confident in while they journey towards independence.
