Skills for life
George Stevens Academy sophomore Eve Skoletsky holds a basket of pumpkin snickerdoodles that she made as part of a kitchen skills project. With help from GSA Ed Tech Tracy Knights, Skoletsky has been making baked goods and distributing them on campus. The project, part of George Stevens Academy’s Road to Independence, Self-Advocacy and Empowerment Program, helps students like Skoletsky learn some of the skills adults need to lead independent lives. In addition to baking, communication and money skills are practiced.
