Community Based Life Skills are a set of skills learned by teaching or by direct experience.
These skills are used to handle problems and questions commonly encountered in daily life from adolescence through adulthood. A community based services model focuses on the development and enhancement of the participant’s knowledge of essential life skills to promote preparation for adulthood and self-sufficiency. Through program design and content, the model goal is to support and maintain a youth’s connection with the community as the youth mature.
This service, through the use of the DCF approved Learning Inventory of Skills Training (L.I.S.T.) assessment tool and experiential learning approaches, provides youth with a set of skills necessary to assist in their transition from DCF care to self-sufficiency. This service includes an individual life skills assessment, followed by individualized and small group experiential learning opportunities.
This service is intended as a component of a comprehensive case plan. As such, the individual providing this service is expected to collaborate with other service providers toward the implementation of the child or youth’s individual case plan.
