Life Enhancement Skills Programs

Youth Business University’s Life Skills programs for our Student-Athletes will be launched in 2015. 

These programs will assist Student-Athletes pertaining to opportunities to engage in enriching activities while building strategies for leading a productive life - in school, and beyond. 

Student-Athletes will find useful information about Academic Strategies, Career Development, Civic Engagement, Financial Literacy, Health and Wellness, Leadership and Teamwork in Organizations, Personal Development, Practical and Household Skills, and Transitions.
