What value do you think these courses offer the community?
It has been shown that healthy relationships are essential to our overall health and wellness. The courses offered by Relationship University provide the community with tools to improve communication, increase parenting skills, and learn conflict resolution. The stronger the relationships within a community are, the stronger the community is as a whole.
What can young professionals like those in our group to do help Relationship University?
The biggest thing young professionals like those in the group can do is spread the word! Almost anyone could benefit from learning new relationship skills. We want to help as many people as we can for as long as we can.
