Experience The Difference
The Prepare U curriculum is designed to effectively help students learn the skills they need to identify mental and emotional risks and concerns, more effectively cope with these concerns in healthy ways on their own, and to know when and how to engage additional parental, community, or professional support when needed. The Prepare U curriculum also teaches students some of the meta-skills they will need to adapt to the rapidly changing social and technological environment they will experience over the course of their work and civic lives.
Quick note: Meta-skills are talents that inform every domain of life and govern your ability to improve other skills.Watch In-Depth Video Overview
