Creating your best life.

A person is smiling at the camera. We can see their eyes and nose, but the photo is cropped above their mouth.

“You gain a sense of freedom when you have independence. You gain peace of mind. It says a lot when you can pave a path for yourself.”

Youth and independence

Building confidence in yourself and your skills while you're still living with people who support you is an important step in living your best life as an adult. Knowing your skills and limits — and making plans for how to get the support you need — will help you make decisions about where you want to live, who you want to live with, and how you want to live your life.

Life skills include things you'll learn in school, as well as how to care for your home, how to handle your money, how to manage your relationships, and how to get the help you need to stay as independent as you choose.
