This series of classes will teach ages 16+ those simple things that many of us take for granted, like how to sew on a button, basic cooking, or how to clean your apartment. The classes will cover those "adult" things that someone else in the house may have taken care of, or you didn't know you would need to learn.
--because life doesn't come with instructions--
Register for all classes by Noon the day before.
