Survivor life skills to clear up the future

Posted on Wednesday, 29 January 2020

Since 2014, Canterbury League Club has been an avid supporter of The Business Concierge and their Survivor Life Skills program which was created to equip young Australians with essential life skills.

Canterbury recently donated $7,500 to the program to finance presentations and student workbooks to schools within the Canterbury-Bankstown region, reaching over 3,390 students in the area.

The Survivor Life Skills program focuses on three main areas: financial literacy, career development and life skills. Schools can choose from over 60 different subjects including budgeting for life, interview skills and techniques, and managing stress and preparing for the High School Certificate.

Survivor Life Skills was started in 1999 by Howard Smith, a former director of a finance company who took a leap of faith to address the need for financial literacy and education in Australian youth.

“Our ongoing passion is bringing the program to students within both the public, private, city and regional education systems,” said Smith.

“The workshops and information provided in the workbooks are significant for students to gain important values for their futures,” said George Coorey, Chairman of Canterbury League Club.

“It’s a great cause to sponsor because you see a lot of young people go for job interviews and they struggle – this program helps them overcome that and offers many other opportunities.”
