Adulting 101 Classes Offered in February

Being an adult is tough. The Michigan State University Extension is offering an Adulting 101 Winter Series online class for young adults.

The class will cover Wealth Building, Workplace Professionalism, Taxes and Your Paycheck, and Food Safety. The classes are held virtually using the Zoom platform.

Students will learn about managing savings and investments and what risk tolerance is. They will also learn how to manage their time and space as related to the workplace, as well as setting healthy boundaries at work.

Other topics include explaining the difference between salary and take-home pay and the very adult world of taxes. There is also a food safety lesson that gives young adults tips on storing and preparing food.

Adulting 101 is for high school students and young adults who are looking for knowledge that will help them navigate the transition into adulthood.

Those interested in the class can sign up for one or all of the sessions and will get a Zoom link for each topic. The classes are held from 4:00-5:00 p.m. on Wednesdays in February.
