Worried that you will be leaving high school without the knowledge and strategies you to need to make a great life? Wondering how you are going to win at life by playing the rules? Which is the most effective form of contraception? How do you really get a job? What are you going to do with your life? What are taxes? Why do I need to graduate high school? The answers to most of these questions will become apparent to you after your weekly pod with Chris D. In LifeLabs 10, you will learn about the world of work, figure out your plan for the next few years and engage with questions about what the future of work looks like, in a world that is constantly changing.
Life Lab’s approach to Planning 10 will give you the insider information necessary to live an exciting, meaningful and ultimately easier life. Learn to cut your cell-phone bill in half, reduce the stress of post-secondary, and have long deep relationships with people you care about! Life Labs 10 will cover everything from finances to relationships; the job market to university planning; and how to extract this important information from the life experiences you’ve already had. Beyond the fundamental credits of Planning 10 and PE 10, your weekly LifeLab will be your space where you and your peers learn organizational skills and discover your learning style at BrainBoost.
