• Persevere’s life skills instruction is embedded within the classroom instructional day and the work experience module so the skills are both learned in context and in small pieces of instruction so they are more likely to be retained and practiced.
  • The mentoring component of the program reinforces life skills through everyday interaction, teaching that the skills are truly for living, not just for the classroom.
  • Life skills instruction focuses on the most important skills needed for success at work and life.
  • Persevere uses an evidence-informed curriculum that has been modified for the adult justice-involved population and others who are at risk for justice involvement. There is also a juvenile version.
