Navigate Up
This program series is designed to help teens transition to a successful future. Each one focuses on a topic related to interpersonal skills, independent living skills, and/or physical and emotional wellness.
Teens collect a button for every program they attend. Once they've attended six LifeHacks programs, teens receive a letter of completion, suitable for inclusion in an academic application or professional portfolio. There are eleven programs in all, offered at libraries across Wake County. More information can be found on our calendar of events.
