What is Life Skills?

Family Life Skills Education Center Illinois is a place where adults and youth attend gender separate classes to be taught valuable life skills from the "Learning to Live, Learning to Love" curriculum. Whether you are in an abusive relationship, experiencing marriage problems, trying to break patterns of the past, or are a troubled teen, Life Skills can help. Life Skills does not do couple counseling. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that exists to reach out to the hurting. We want to help individuals break free from behavior that can cause strained, broken, or abusive relationships. We seek to turn negative patterns around and to teach skills to promote growth. We teach individuals the reasons for behaviors without placing guilt or blame, showing each individual dignity and respect as they go through the healing process. Family Life Skills Education Center Illinois is affiliated with Life Skills International, headquartered in Denver, Colorado. Founded 30 years ago by Dr. Paul Hegstrom.
