All Yolo County’s 7th through 12th grade students are invited to participate in Adulting 101: Life Skills for Teens, hosted by the Woodland Public Library. This free event will take place on Saturday, November 13th, from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Woodland Community and Senior Center in 2001 East St.
The event will begin at 8:30 am with a greeting from Yolo County’s Headmaster Garth Lewis, followed by keynote speaker Robert Egger. Egger is the founder and president of LA Kitchen, which recovers cosmetically imperfect local fruits and vegetables to promote a culinary education program for young people coming from foster families and older people returning from prison.
Each middle or high school student in Yolo County can attend and choose up to four workshops to learn life skills not normally taught in high school.
“I’ve been to Adulting 101 in the past and I’ve really enjoyed eating on a budget, learning what food groups to use and how long the food should last,” said Iris Ramirez, a junior at Woodland High School . “I’m looking forward to going back this year.”
Breakfast and lunch are provided from Las Brasas. City council members will be present at lunchtime and will be available to answer questions about local government.
Adulting 101 will end with a closing speech from Mayor Tom Stallard.
