Michigan State University Extension's Adulting 101 programs help high school students demystify the obscure reality of being an “adult” through engaging educational sessions. Each session is packed full of important life skills and tools necessary to live independently.  Topics include:  money management, community engagement, conflict resolution, career and future education, home skills and more.   

In addition to sessions, MSU Extension's robust website provides additional information for participants to further explore Adulting 101 topic areas.
