Essential Life Skills for Military Families yellow ribbon

Essential Life Skills is designed specifically for Reserve component military members and their families. These interactive and engaging workshops will help participants deal with the unique challenges experiencing as a reserve military family. Held in the local community to the unit, the classes are taught by Readiness and Deployment Support Trainers, from Marine Corps Family Team Building, Marine Forces Reserve.

Participants will discover practical and enjoyable ways to create strong, healthy and resilient relationships. They will gain knowledge about managing finances and routine legal issues, becoming a better listener and problem solver and parenting together and apart. The four modules are Preparing for Unexpected Events, Finance, Legal, and Resilience in the family.

Essential Life Skills for Military Families is ideal for Pre Deployment preparations, but can be held anytime as Readiness training.
