The Life Navigator Program has been a huge asset to our students and school community! It is easy to tell students to “get organized” or “manage your time better,” but it’s another thing to know how to teach those skills. That is why the Life Navigator curriculum is so essential! ....Taking the time to be intentional with this work is helping empower our students in a way that impacts them immediately and will continue to drive their success throughout their lifetimes.... This has been a great partnership for our school!
