Adulting at any age may be hard, and it can be especially challenging for 16 to 24 year olds. That’s why the Pierce County Library System created its free Life After High School program – to better prepare young adults for adulting.

“Moving out on your own can be scary,” said Pierce County Library’s Executive Director Georgia Lomax. “Young adults can learn what it takes to be an adult before they make the leap into independence. These courses can help them be more successful, from how to make and save money to how to cook healthy and stay on budget.”

The interactive Life After High School series will cover topics including transportation, cooking on a budget, making, saving and spending money, and renting basics. The four-part series will be held at the following library locations:
