Problem Statement

How might we make up for the lack of soft skills taught in schools?


Customer / Problem

The final years of school are often an incredibly stressful time for young people. However, despite the huge workload, many students still leave school feeling unprepared for life in the adult world. This is due to the lack of essential soft skills taught in traditional education, which favours more theoretical subjects.


Solution

Our solution is to introduce an educational workshop run weekly within schools that will help better equip young people with the skills necessary for taking on adulthood. This course, "Adulting 101", will include workshops on cooking, car maintenance, taxes, job interviews and more. We aim to improve the futures of young people and alleviate some of the pressure created by the expectations of adulthood by giving youth the chance to practically explore the lives they want to lead.
