The LEG Blog

Life-Skills Empowerment Group was created in 2019 after observing a noticeable shift in public school curriculum. As technology was advancing, basic/trade skills were being ignored and eliminated, while at the same time the trade skills workforce was experiencing a shortage of young adult workers. A majority of the general population of high school seniors are encouraged to pursue a four year college degree in spite of each student’s unique interests, availability, and commitments. 

The LEG Team is proud to guide any young student with life skills education, no matter what their post high school path may be, towards becoming a well-rounded and successful contributing adult. 

Regardless of their life and education goals, we intend to become lifelong mentors to these students, encouraging and fostering their pathway choices, while offering unlimited access and support from our team.
