Adulting 101 in 2021

​This program was designed to give youth the knowledge that they need as they evolve into adulthood. This 10 session program goes through many different topics that youth may not learn at home or in school. We want to make adulting just a little bit easier, and with this program, youth are taught life skills while also creating friendships along the way!


Big Brothers Big Sisters of Centre Wellington's Youth Action Committee developed the idea of the Adulting 101 program to bring youth together to learn the skills needed to make adulthood easier to navigate!

For youth, by youth!
