How we started doing what we do
Life Skills was started by Marius and Madelein Wolfaardt, we have been working with youth and children since 2004. We both are attuned to recognizing the potential in people and find it immensely rewarding to assist people on their walk of life, at whatever stage they might be. Learning life skills is not necessarily for people who have problems but it is beneficial to any person who wishes to improve their lives by doing worthwhile things, overcome challenges or get some guidance on their path of personal growth.
We realized that there are big gaps for kids to breach while growing up, moving from primary to high school, and from high school to university/ college or getting a job as well as traumatic life events. These changes can be daunting to a child or teenager and the choices they make in these critical phases of their lives, shape their future.
The importance of teaching people life skills has grown exponentially and as times change, we need to change along with it. Now, more than ever, we see the need for emotional intelligence and coaching people towards personal development. This is ultimately our goal, to help people move their personal stumbling blocks out of the way, to enable them to grow personally and live a fulfilling life. Life skills will not only help you work through problems but can assist you in building on something that is already good. There is always room for improvement and something new we can learn, which will improve our quality of life and relationships.
