Bored of Education is our RELEVANCY component. When a young person asks, “Why should I go to school”, most of us find it difficult to provide a meaningful response. Bored of Education is the curriculum that parents, educators and youth have been looking for! It contains over 20 definitive reasons why students need to stay in (and graduate from) school.

Everything You Need to Know is our TRANSITION component. Unfortunately, there is a large gap between the THEORY we learn in school and the APPLICATION of that knowledge in the “real world”. Failure to transfer skills leads thousands of graduates every year to find themselves out of work or behind bars. Everything You Need To Know bridges this gap by providing the tips and techniques to better young people for the many challenges of real life. This curriculum is filled with all of those lessons we WISH we knew about the real world before we had to struggle through it and learn the hard way. Topics include: career readiness, money management, overcoming fear and disappointment, dealing with change, avoiding the trap AND MORE!
