The LifeSkills Training & Education Program facilitates workshops that offer opportunities for personal and professional growth, emphasizing skill building in areas such as leadership, communication, resilience, relationship effectiveness and overall readiness. Every workshop offers an open and highly interactive atmosphere, where participants are in the driver’s seat. Classes are geared toward every demographic, catering to those who are single, married, or anywhere in between. With curriculum designed by Best Selling authors and highly acclaimed personal development groups, these workshops can generate results that impact every aspect of a participant’s life.

4 Lenses

Not sure why everyone doesn’t see things your way? Clearly if they did, everything would be much better. Sadly, each of us sees the world from different points of view, or lenses. This hilarious, interactive workshop identifies which “lens” you use to look at our world. More importantly, you’ll learn how others see the exact same world. No matter what role you fill (leader, follower, husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, parent, or child) you’ll walk away with a whole new perspective on just about everyone around you.

Five Love Languages

Of the countless ways we can show love to one another, five key categories, or five love languages, proved to be universal and comprehensive. Everyone has a love language, and we all identify primarily with one of the five love languages: Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Receiving gifts, Acts of Service, and Physical Teach. Join us as we explore the different languages. Based on Dr. Gary Chapman’s bestselling book by the same title, the Five Love Languages workshop will help you figure out how you love while also bringing awareness to how others need to be loved.

We also teach 5 Love Languages for Singles, Military, Children, and Teens.


Calling all couples! YES ALL COUPLES. Married, dating, committed, just met, carpooling – you’re totally the right fit. No matter how long you’ve been together or your marital status you’re are guaranteed to walk away from this workshop as Relationship Ninjas, capable of fighting off the rough patches when they sneak up on you. Couples spend most of their time in one-on-one discussions putting the skills they’re learning to practice right away.

Prevention & Relationship Enhancement Program (P.R.E.P.) is a skills training program established by Dr. Howard J. Markman of the University of Denver Center of Marital and Family Studies. It teaches married or engaged couples communication skills and ground rules for handling conflict and promoting intimacy. The program's aim is to prevent future marital problems including violence and divorce.

Building Lasting Relationships

Lasting relationships take work. Add the military lifestyle to that and now you’re up against another set of challenges altogether. No matter where you’re at in your current relationship, there’s no better time to make it stronger than ever. We’re talking silverback gorilla strong! While it’s always great to attend couples classes together, sometimes that just can’t happen (so individuals are always welcome, too). Whether the honeymoon hasn’t happened yet, is still ongoing, or was over years ago, the information and activities offer positive and proactive ways to build a healthy, lasting relationship.

Strong Military Couples

Stay connected with your partner, no matter where you are in your military life and marriage/dating relationship. This workshop, intended for couples, is designed to encourage communication, and give participants tools to strengthen their relationship. Learn skills to help enhance appreciation for your significant other’s strengths and how they complement you. Some of the topics covered in this workshop include…communication, problem Solving, roles & responsibilities, appreciation, personality differences, and pre/post deployment.
