How we started doing what we do

How we started doing what we do

Life Skills was started by Marius and Madelein Wolfaardt who have been working with youth and children since 2004. 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. 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 kids and teens life skills have grown exponentially and as times change, we need to change along with it. Now, more than ever, we see the big 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, whatever it may be, to enable them to grow personally and live a fulfilling life in their full potential.

Why Life Skills?

The development of life skills helps us to find new ways of thinking and solving problems.

In a constantly changing environment, having life skills is an essential part of being able to meet the challenges of everyday life. We help people tap into their full potential and define/achieve their goals for who they want to be and what they want to do.
