<ul><li>Capstone Living </li></ul><ul><li>As an adult it is difficult to maintain housing, and our youth are growing up being unprepared to handle the demands of “being grown”. Budgeting, Housing Options, and learning Independent Living Skills are essential in the “transitions” from youth to adulthood. Capstone Experience, Inc will offer fun and exciting workshops to assist with this evolution of life. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Retreats </li></ul><ul><li>The true "Capstone Experience" is exploring the world through retreats. Since life brings its own issues, getting away to escape from those issues may not be realistic. However, Capstone Experience, Inc retreats are designed to rejuvenate participants so they can better handle life's challenges.

<ul><li>Capstone Connections </li></ul><ul><li>Working two jobs just to make the ends meet, so who has the money or time to continue the involvement necessary for our teens?
