We have recently made some changes to how we run things in our senior classes to create more time and space for creative and life skills-focused projects. Over the course of their high school career, our students will have the opportunity to learn the following skills in our new 'Conscious Living' life skills classes:
 

  • how to grow their own food
  • how to make their own compost
  • how to make their own worm farm to collect worm castings and worm tea
  • how to cook healthy, nutritious meals
  • how to knit and crochet clothing items and other decorative pieces
  • how to sew their own clothes using sustainably sourced and/or secondhand materials
  • how to make their own beauty and self-care products like soaps, face creams, deodorants, etc.
  • how to make plastic-free alternatives like beeswax food covers and macrame shopping bags
  • how to make environmentally cleaning products
  • how to make a solar-powered generator, dehydrator, and heating system
  • how to make a clay oven
  • how to make biodiesel 
  • how to make an easel and canvas for art projects
  • how to create designs and do screen printing
  • how to create a personal brand
  • how to start a business
  • how to develop a website and app 

 

We are so thrilled to be introducing these exciting and life-giving projects to our students. We truly believe that through these projects, our students will find their purpose and passion, and will improve their self-esteem as they realize how capable they are of taking care of themselves and contributing to the world in a positive way.

 

We've also decided to create a YouTube channel to document their various projects that we're doing to hopefully inspire other young people around the world. You can find our channel here: Conscious Living - The Daniel Academy
