Teaching Today the topics for tomorrow
Business and life skills are important and rarely covered in a traditional learning environment. In generations past, life skills were a part of education in schools. Students learned the skills needed to manage their finances and home as part of their school curriculum. As the focus in education has changed, these skills have fallen by the wayside.
In recent years, these classes have come back into educational settings, teaching students these subjects. Students are getting back to basics and learning necessary life skills. Dubbed “adulting” education, these classes focus on the skills that young adults need to live independently.
That’s where we come in. Y.M.B.A. Business and Life Skills classes can provide your child with the knowledge and skills they need to be independent and responsible in a wide variety of areas. We teach classes in accounting to interpersonal skills and everywhere in between.
Classes are designed for students 12 to 16 years of age. Students can take classes in any order they choose, and select topics that interest them or focus on skills they need to learn. Each class instructs a specific topic to help your child transition to adulthood. Class schedules are posted three months in advance so that your family can plan now for the classes your learner wants to take in the future.
Online learning is flexible and allows the student to learn at their own pace. Students pick their topic and the class time that works best for them to master their new skills. Y.M.B.A.’s classes are capped at nine students to allow your child personal attention from their instructor.
Why go virtual?
Online learning is on the rise. Studies have shown that students have a higher retention rate when learning online. According to Forbes, 85% of students surveyed in a recent study stated that their online learning experience was equal to or better than a traditional classroom. 37% of those students said the online experience was superior to in-person learning.
Our classes utilize a discussion-based virtual model that helps your child learn in an engaging environment. Our instructors have taught thousands of virtually based classes and can apply their experience to quickly adapt to your child's learning style.
Y.M.B.A. offers students the option to work towards a certificate. Your student may choose to complete a Certificate Path, completing any ten classes in twelve-months, or a topic certificate, completing eight classes in a single topic. When complete they will receive a certificate in the mail to easily display their learning accomplishment. The Y.M.B.A. online learning model gives your family the flexibility of when to attend and the ability to choose which topics to learn. At Y.M.B.A. the engaging teachers build an atmosphere where students are excited to engage, as they build skills to match their education with their future needed life skills.
