Life Skills Reimagined is an online independent living curriculum for youth in state’s care between the ages of 16-21 years old.
Youth who complete the curriculum will receive a $250 Visa egift card. Completion of the curriculum will unlock a final survey. Completion of this survey will automatically trigger the incentive payment. The gift card will be emailed to the youth within 4 weeks. The youth should ensure the email they enter in the LYFT platform is correct. The email must be the youth’s personal email address. The gift card cannot be emailed to someone else’s email address, including a social worker, case worker, foster parent, etc. The gift card also cannot be sent to a kyschools.us email address.
In addition to the online platform, LYFT also includes PDF materials including Action Plans, Application Guides and other resources. Youth can print these forms directly from their online LYFT account.
Partner agencies may also want to have copies ready to distribute to their youth. To request a workbook with the PDF materials, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
