Our second activity in March brought the MTC youth together to learn a variety of practical skills that will serve them well as they move on to the next stage in their life, whether that be a mission, college, employment, or something else. We started off with a fun and informative workshop on budgeting, where we learned about the importance of prioritizing our planned expenses, being prepared in the event of unplanned expenses, and ensuring that we are making financially savvy decisions and keeping within our means. Next, we worked on interpersonal and communication skills that are important for job interviews, friend/dating relationships, and of course for teaching effectively as a missionary. Finally, we had mini-workshops on skills for basic upkeep and appearance, including laundry, ironing, quick-fix sewing, and shoe shining. Our amazing youth already had a lot of these skills down, but we all walked away having learned something new and feeling that much more confident in ourselves.
