Botvin Life Skills Training: Transitions

The Botvin Life Skills Transitions program is a free 6 week, once-a-week course and mentoring program that works with young adults who are transitioning between life stages – into higher education, the workforce, or independent living. Botvin works to strengthen 3 different areas of abilities:

  • Personal Self-Management Skills
    Provides participants with strategies for decision-making, managing stress, and managing time and money.
  • General Social Skills
    Enables participants to strengthen their communication skills and build and maintain relationships in a variety of settings.
  • Drug Resistance Skills
    Empowers participants to understand the consequences of substance use and risk-taking.
