Life skills

With a Life Skills course, you get the tools to master your life, get the experience of belonging and get to be part of a larger community.

A Life Skills course where community, teaching, joint activities, play, excursions and socializing with a lot of new people are in focus.

Life Skills is part of a general course. You will have Life Skills classes and the rest of the time you will be with the other students, in teaching about theology, society, Bible, communication, etc. and our morning devotions.
All of this will strengthen some of the life skills and insights that are relevant to your daily life, but also when you want to actively engage with society.

What you get out of Life Skills

You will have the opportunity to develop yourself positively and to acquire new social, personal and professional perspectives.
We want to strengthen the whole human being. Strengthen faith in yourself as being valuable, strengthen understanding of yourself in the community with others, and strengthen the ability to find space for thoughts around existential issues, thoughts of God, and faith.

Based on the topics: living with oneselves, living with others and living in society, you will be guided throughout the process through active participation and exercises in teaching as well as practical work.

A stay also contributes to clarifying your future plans.
