Northeast Missouri Community Action Agency has an upcoming project for youth ages 11-17. The project is called: Navigating Life: Skill-Building For Tomorrow’s Community.

Practical information and skills include learning about child development, seat belt simulator, ABCs of life, job readiness and communications, nutrition and etiquette.

The life skills fun will begin July 27 and will conclude on July 29 at the Scotland County Service Center (Head Start entrance) on Jefferson Street in Memphis. Life Skills will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 4:00 p.m., Monday through Wednesday. Lunch will be served and all necessarily materials will be provided.

To receive the $30 stipend families must meet an income guideline. If your youth is interested in attending these classes, please call Kristal Phillips at 660-465-8558.
